  1. Linda Braiman's rating and/or comments:

    We have the basic journal package through the consortium. While it is really great to be able to offer our nursing students and faculty a ten-year online archive to American Journal of Nursing, Ovid’s interface makes no attempt to address 508 compliance. Sadly, our district’s legal counsel will not allow us to renew this as ADA issues are a big problem for our system.
