Elsevier Announces Revamped Mosby’s Index

New version offers nurses, librarians and researchers a powerful connection to evidence-based content

Philadelphia, PA, May 9, 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the revamping of Mosby’s Index, the most robust journal abstracts and indexing database available for nurses and other healthcare professionals. Offering a broad range of unique content and search results from more than 3,150 international source titles, Mosby’s Index is now in an easier-to-navigate format with more searching power.

Mosby’s Index is part of Mosby’s Suite, which connects clinicians to authoritative information and powerful technology to provide the resources necessary to consistently provide optimal patient care.

“As a leader in educating healthcare professionals, we understand the tools necessary for nurses, clinicians, and librarians to do their jobs thoroughly and effectively,” said Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Mosby's eLearning for Elsevier. “With this redesigned Mosby’s Index, we’ve ramped up the power of the searches and are providing a tool that is easier for all users to navigate and leverage for their research needs.”

The new Mosby’s Index offers a simple, intuitive interface, filters to narrow search results, and easier access to Drug and Disease Subheadings, among other enhancements.  It also includes improved timesaving tools such as email alerts, saved searches and the capability to share search results.

“The filters, adjustable time frame, [and] choice of search are all easier ways to start a search for particular articles and research items,” said Sandra Beta, MSN, RN, OCN, Nursing/Nurse Educator at Cancer Treatment Centers of America®.  Kristie Saumure, a reference librarian at a government health organization, added, “I found it very easy and straightforward to find all of the tools needed to complete my search.”
