Change in Access to Cochrane and ACP Journal Club

In order to reduce costs by eliminating resources previously purchased in two separate formats, the Bio-Medical Library has decided not to renew access the Evidence Based Medicine Reviews (EBMR) suite of databases via the Ovid system. EBMR databases included those in the Cochrane Library: Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness, Cochrane Controlled Trials Registry, and article reviews from the American College of Physicians, ACP Journal Club.

Each of these specialty databases is still available online to U of M Libraries users, by going to the BioMedSearch page, or directly to http://www.lib.umn.edu/cgi-bin/cochl.cgi for the Cochrane Library databases and http://tc.liblink.umn.edu/sfx_local?sid=sfx:e_collection&issn=1056-875

for the ACP Journal Club.
