Responding to user feedback we are working to maximise the range and quality of ejournals offered.
For some time now we have had the BMJ group titles available (BMJ, EMJ, ADC, Gut, Heart etc) and the JAMA & Archives collection. We have also have over a thousand other titles via a number of suppliers.
As part of the renewal of journals purchased locally for 2010 we have swapped the paper subscriptions we had with Wiley Blackwell into electronic form. We have invested further to buy access to some three hundred journals from the same publisher. You can find a full list here (NB select Medicine and Nursing Collection from the drop down in Column N to see just the titles available). This means important titles like BJS, BJUi, JAN, BJOG, BJD, BJH and many more are now available at your convenience. Generally you will find the last ten years of issues are available.
The simplest way to browse all our journals is via MyJournals. You need to ensure you use your Athens login (register online if you have not yet done so) to ensure you see everything we offer. You will also find our journal holdings linked from any searches you make in our research article databases. It is worth noting that we some times have access to a title but not direct from the publisher site (The Lancet is one example of this). Use MyJournals to be sure to get the full picture.

We have just published the list of new book acquisitions for January 2010. Not a particularly extensive list it must be said, as we have been occupied with various 'turn of the year' tasks to improve and maintain our service.
Midwives will be interested in the purchase of Essential midwifery practice : postnatal care by S Byrom and Spiby's Evidence based midwifery : applications in context.
We also have several new titles in the area of childcare nursing, including Perioperative care of the child: a nursing manual and the new edition of Meeks' Nursing the neonate.
The complete list gives details of our other purchases, and of course Newhamcat is there for you to check our full stock of titles.
