New database interface coming soon

NICE’s  Healthcare Database Advanced Search (HDAS) is being refurbished. HDAS offers access to eight bibliographic databases through a common interface. The new interface has been tested extensively – you can try it out yourself at

We understand that the new interface will be launched in early September. If you have saved HDAS searches and alerts we understand that these will be migrated for you. As we have more news, we will announce it here, and our Overview of Health Resources and Finding Quality Health Information courses will use the new interface once it’s live.

Update: the latest position is outlined in a blog post by NICE (9 September 2016).
