PILOTS database now PTSDpubs

PTSDpubs

THE PILOTS DATABASE has been renamed as PTSDpubs in the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch to align with ProQuest’s updated name for the resource.

Access to the service is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

The PTSDpubs bibliographic database (previously PILOTS), covering the Published International Literature On Traumatic Stress, is produced at the headquarters of the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in White River Junction, Vermont. The PTSDpubs database is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Its goal is to include citations to all literature on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental-health sequelae of traumatic events, without disciplinary, linguistic, or geographical limitations, and to offer both current and retrospective coverage.
