Many features of the new platform OvidSP can be tailored to local requirements. You can ask your usual site contact, or Ovid Technical Support. For example the Search History can be "collapsed" or "expanded" as your local setting.
Mauro Castillo Garcia-Maurino (Mauro) has been with Ovid for some years and in 2007 moved to the UK. Optimization of your local implementation is part of his remit.
