I'm not sure about the other two but we subscribe to Cochrane through
Ebsco and think it is pretty good!



"The Cochrane Library contains high-quality, independent evidence to
inform healthcare decision-making. It includes reliable evidence from
Cochrane and other systematic reviews, clinical trials, and more.
Cochrane reviews bring you the combined results of the world's best
medical research studies, and are recognized as the gold standard in
evidence-based health care.   After clicking on the Cochrane Library
link above, you will have access to three evidence-based databases
comprising the Cochrane Library, specifically:

*         Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials 

*         Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 

*         Cochrane Methodology Register

Subject: ? Cochrane Library on Wiley, Ovid, Ebsco


I know that the Cochrane Collaboration chose Wiley for the Cochrane
Library and that is how we are currently accessing it at our library.
Previously we had Cochrane through Ovid. I've not see the Ebsco version.
Does anyone know if there has been a comparison of the 3 vendors? If
not, are there users who have thoughts about the strengths and
weaknesses of each version?

Thanks for any input,



Nancy Calabretta, MS, MEd.
