Ovid databases now include a multimedia search

Ovid has now introduced multimedia functionality to the OvidSP platform. Videos and images from a range of LWW journals and books are now available for searching together with your Ovid databases, and browsing by subject.


Multimedia content is included in searches of any of your Ovid databases. The number of Multimedia results retrieved from your search will be displayed in the search history. The top two multimedia results will appear at the top of the results display. You can limit the results display to exclusively multimedia content by clicking on the Multimedia link in the results tools, or the ‘See more multimedia results’ link:

Please note that all Multimedia content will appear in the Multimedia tab and results display, however your users will only be able to view content from your subscribed journals and books. A future Multimedia release will allow you to filter the display to show only Multimedia content from your subscribed titles.
