Pre-CINAHL Now Fully Merged With CINAHL

The Pre-CINAHL database, which provided searchers with current awareness of the newest journal articles, and included a rotating file of limited bibliographic information while the complete citation records were being edited, has been fully merged into the CINAHL database and discontinued as a stand-alone resource. As a result, searches in the CINAHL database will include Pre-CINAHL content. Pre-CINAHL citation records in CINAHL normally will not include abstracts or assigned subject terms, although citation information and links to full-text (where available) will be included. Searchers will have the option to exclude Pre-CINAHL records from search results by using a checkbox available on the search screen.
