From the 1st April CINAHL Plus with Full Text and Health Business Elite (HBE) will no longer be available. Any search alerts containing these two databases in the search strategy will result in error. Please note the actions below:
CINAHL Plus with full text
Any searches you’ve saved in HDAS that used this database will automatically be changed on the 01 April so that they use the CINAHL index.
For saved searches in the EBSCO native interface you will need to manually migrate any searches you want to re-use to the CINAHL index database. This can be done by editing the search from your folder in the native interface, selecting the CINAHL Index database and saving the search.
Health Business Elite (HBE)
HBE will be decommissioned on Friday 29 March. After this date:
Any saved search strategies and alerts in HDAS that were run in HBE as a single database will be removed and will not be available.
Saved search strategies in HDAS that are set to run across multiple databases, which include HBE as one of those databases, will return an error message until HBE is removed from the search strategy. For alerts in HDAS that include HBE, instead of the usual alert you will receive an email with a message saying the database is no longer available. You will receive an email for each alert that include HBE.
If you want to keep the saved search or alert, you will need to edit the strategy and remove HBE and any dependent rows. Any outstanding searches that still contain HBE at the end of June 2019 will be automatically deleted in HDAS.
Saved search strategies and alerts in the EBSCO native interface that are set to run across multiple databases, which include HBE as one of the multiple databases, will no longer work and will result in an error. If you want to keep the saved search you should delete HBE from the search strategy. The search alert can be updated by editing it from your folder in the native interface. For your alerts to continue to work you will need to make this change before 01 April.
Links to full text articles from CINAHL Plus with Full Text and HBE
Full text journal content that was accessible within these databases will not be available. Links in HDAS saved results won’t show, and where links have been exported from HDAS – for example into current awareness bulletins – these will result in an error unless you have another route of access to the journal, such as a local subscription to the relevant journal title, the title is available in an alternative NCC full text collection or is Open Access.
