WHAT IS THE COCHRANE LIBRARY?
The Cochrane Library is a collection of biomedical databases containing evidence-based information to assist in healthcare decisions. The collection includes:
- Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR), a journal well known for its high-quality systematic reviews. The reviews and editorials found in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) are indexed in PubMed.
- Cochrane Clinical Answers a readable, digestible, clinically-focused entry point to rigorous research from Cochrane Reviews. They are designed to be actionable and to inform point-of-care decision-making.
HOW DO I USE THE COCHRANE LIBRARY TO FIND SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS?
To access the Cochrane Library, enter the library through the link in your classroom. Select Cochrane Library from the A-Z Databases link under the main search box on the library's homepage. A link to the Cochrane Library is also found in the Nursing Research Strategies Guide.
Use the search box at the top of the homepage to search the entire content of the Cochrane Library. Tabs on the result screen can be used to focus on specific types of content, including systematic reviews.
