New Cochrane Library searching interface

For the last year, Wiley worked with members of the Cochrane Collaboration, including a team of Trial Search Coordinators (TSCs), to update the Search functionality within The Cochrane Library. The team looked at ways to improve the current Search interface and introduced a series of design improvements and new features, geared at enhancing the search experience for both novice and experienced users of the Cochrane Library.

The first search enhancement release launched on September 15th.  The next releases are scheduled to launch in October and December of 2012.

For more information on the new search functionality follow this link  http://www.thecochranelibrary.com/view/0/ccochnewsearch.html
