    Cochrane Library  Evidence-based medicine (EBM) resources including a database of systematic reviews and meta-analyses
    PsycINFO Covers psychology and psychological aspects of related disciplines such as medicine, physiology, psychiatry, nursing, and pharmacology.
    Google Scholar   Another way to search for scholarly literature.
    Online Journals Journals subscribed by the libraries at the University of Utah
