Annual MEDLINE® Reload: Final 2016 MEDLINE Update Scheduled
Dear Ovid MEDLINE® Customer:
We are preparing for the annual global data reload of MEDLINE. As in past years, the National Library of Medicine (NLM®) will end their 2016 distribution of updates (adding fully-indexed MEDLINE citations to PubMed) in order to make the transition to the 2017 version of MeSH®; the final NLM update took place on November 14, 2016. The MEDLINE In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations updates will resume shortly after this and continue throughout the full reload process.
In accordance with the NLM schedule, the November Week 3 2016 update will be the last 2016 update and will be available to Ovid MEDLINE subscribers on November 23, 2016.
Important note for users who currently have an AutoAlert saved on Ovid MEDLINE
While MEDLINE global data maintenance is being performed, no new records are added to MEDLINE. Since the data is not being updated by the NLM, AutoAlert searches in MEDLINE will not be generated by Ovid. The search results generated during that time will include all new data added since the previous update.
Feel free to contact Customer Support with any questions by sending an email to [email protected].
