New Resource: The Cochrane Library

The Cochrane Library is an evidence-based medicine resource that summarizes results of high-quality medical research to support health care decision-making. The collection consists of 6 databases:

  1. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR)
  2. Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL)
  3. Cochrane Methodology Register (CMR)
  4. Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE)
  5. Health Technology Assessment Database (HTA)
  6. NHS Economic Evaluation Database (EED)

The default search looks for word(s) in the title, abstract and keyword fields. The advanced search allows researchers to apply more complex search strategies using AND, OR and NOT. Read the Cochrane Library Search Tour handout for more search tips and an overview of the features offered.
