In the coming months, your view of The Cochrane Library’s search interface is about to become much more functional. The Cochrane Library, known for its independent, high quality evidence assisting doctors in decision-making, has made the following changes to its search features, including:

  • auto-suggestion of searches at both the basic and MeSH levels
  • search box and results on the same page
  • updated display of search results and filtering options
  • the ability to add one search to another search
  • hover-over tool tips, giving a short explanation of functionality
  • improved MeSH features
  • all previously saved searches will automatically move to the new platform

This is just the beginning of functionality changes planned for The Cochrane Library. Check the Palmer Library blog for continuing updates as The Cochrane Library improves.
