What is Cochrane Library?

http://www.thecochranelibrary.com

Cochrane Library

  • It is a leading source for peer reviewed systematic reviews in all areas of healthcare. 
  • It also publishes information on medical trials, mainly pulled from MEDLINE and EMBASE.  

Advantage:

This database is a convenient way to search for systematic reviews.  However, keep in mind there will be far fewer results for your search than in a database like PubMed.  There may only be one or two systematic reviews that apply to your research area.

Disadvantage:

Since we do not subscribe to the full text version of this database, all systematic reviews will need to be ordered via Interlibrary Loan.  You can access the form here: http://jupiter.ysu.edu/screens/articleill.html

Remember: Each database is different and sometimes it can be hard or frustrating starting your research. If you ever need help in navigating a certain database, the staff at the Research & Information Desk will gladly help!  Feel free to stop by or give us a call at (330) 941-3686.
