  • Announcing Cross-Database Search


    The Library is pleased to introduce a one-stop search engine designed to access information from several credible resources at once. Employing a familiar, intuitive search interface, UCSF Cross-Database Search [link removed] quickly retrieves high-value results from journals and databases subscribed to by UCSF.

    To offer a search tool tailored to the UCSF community, the Library partnered with Deep Web Technologies and handpicked resources in Nursing, Clinical Medicine, Drug Information, Basic Sciences, and Dentistry. Users have the option to search all, some, or one of these subject areas at a time, and the search interface makes it easy to refine lengthy results.

    Try UCSF Cross-Database Search and let us know what you think.

  • Scopus: A New Lens on UCSF Research Excellence


    Want to track who’s citing your papers? Are you trying to understand the breadth of UCSF’s research output?

    Scopus is now available from the UCSF Library on a trial basis. Scopus allows researchers to see who has cited their work in the past, and to follow new citations going forward. It allows research officers to develop a profile of UCSF research output, both for specific years and over time.

  • Test Drive Our New Resources


    We need your input! Our new Under Consideration page gathers all the new products that the Library is testing in order to improve your access to quality health sciences information. Currently we have two product trials that will end June 30 -- Ingenuity Pathways Analysis and Faculty of 1000 Medicine.

    Please take some time to explore each tool and then complete our very short survey to give us your feedback about the products under consideration.

    Also, take a few moments to check out our featured resources gathered on the same page. These are hidden gems that everyone at UCSF can access already, such as a very extensive collection of electronic books. We're always glad to get feedback from you about these and other resources.
