Help with the new CAB ABSTRACTS interface is available at you desktop.

CAB ABSTRACTS is the international, research database for agriculture and veterinary medicine.

The interface to CAB ABSTRACTS changed recently to Ovid.

The new Ovid interface is much different from the old one. The change was made because Ovid purchased SilverPlatter.

Fortunately, CABI trainer Chris Ison is offering free web-based training to anyone needing help searching
CAB ABSTRACTS.

Contact him directly to arrange training and see what scheduled training is available from your desktop.
