New EMBASE.com Release

Phoenix, AZ, May 19, 2006 – Elsevier Bibliographic Databases is pleased to present the recently introduced Release 6.0 of EMBASE.com to attendees of the 2006 MLA Annual Conference. Streamlined functionality and more powerful information management tools have now made EMBASE.com even easier to use.

Medical librarians and their user communities have always been able to rely on the power of EMBASE and MEDLINE combined in the single EMBASE.com platform to support the research process and the practice of evidence-based medicine. EMBASE.com delivers content that keeps up with the latest scientific developments and functionality that enhances every search session. New Release 6.0 features and functionality have been specifically designed to help users build on the results of previous sessions and share information with their colleagues:

Users can now save selected records from one or more searches to the "Clipboard" feature. Contents of a personal Clipboard can be saved for future use or added to an existing saved Clipboard. Users can name, save, e-mail, export or view an unlimited number of Clipboards.

Saved Searches in the "myInstitution" folder can be accessed and shared by an entire IP range. This means that anyone throughout an institution can make use of the searches that have been saved within this communal folder.

Name Saved Searches enables easier retrieval for future searches. Users can recall the named Saved Searches by simply typing in "#" and the name of the Saved Search, which enables them to easily set up a search to use in combination with other searches.

Elsevier is located in Booth 504 at the MLA 2006 Hall of Exhibits.
