Databases for finding Evidence Based Practice resources

Now that you have formulated your question, and have your search strategy, where do you go to find your information?

Below is a list of the major databases we use when searching for quality evidence.

Some resources are freely available to search for scholarly information. However, CQUniversity Library plays a critical role in accessing the research literature, as the Library pays for subscription licenses to scholarly publications, allowing you significantly more access to full-text resources. Your hospital library in the clinical setting may also provide full text access to some of these resources.
