I've been using the Cochrane Library 10+ years first via Update Software, and now Wiley.  And what keeps me using it via Wiley is the additional info you have on the Cochrane Groups, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/o/cochrane/cochrane_clabout_contents_fs.html there's lot of info in the group descriptions often search strategies, contacts, methods and links to more.  I like being able to search all the types of content in all the contributing sources and skip the trials register if I choose. And, still I can export all the cites from all the sources with my homemade Cochrane Combo EndNote filter.

We went from Ovid to EBSCO because we got a better price (2 years ago, I
think). Users have not reported any dissatisfaction.

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

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
