The Cochrane Library is well-known internationally and in many countries, within Europe and beyond, national licences ensure wide access amongst clinicians, researchers and the general public. The Cochrane Library has developed continually since it was first published 20 years ago. Many health care librarians are familiar with the Cochrane Library but perhaps there have been some new developments of which you may not be aware? This one-hour webinar is intended for healthcare librarians who are familiar with the Cochrane Library as well as those who are less well acquainted with it.
