The Cochrane Library is a collection of databases that contain different types of high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is the leading resource for systematic reviews in health care. CDSR includes all Cochrane Reviews (and protocols) prepared by Cochrane Review Groups. The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) is a highly concentrated source of reports of randomized and quasi-randomized controlled trials. Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCAs) provide a readable, digestible, clinically-focused entry point to rigorous research from Cochrane Reviews. They are designed to be actionable and to inform point-of-care decision-making. Each CCA contains a clinical question, a short answer, and data for the outcomes from the Cochrane Review deemed most relevant to practising healthcare professionals, our target audience.
This multidisciplinary collection includes thousands of e-books covering a large selection of academic subjects and features e-books from leading publishers and university presses.

Subjects include: Business and economics; Education; Language arts and disciplines; Political science; Religion; Literary criticism; Medical; Social Science; Philosophy; Technology and engineering; and World history.
The Harvard Business Review Press Collection includes HBR’s complete catalog of e-books. Business subjects covered include: Business Communication; Career Development; Decision-Making & Problem Solving; Economics; Entrepreneurship; Finance; Human Resources & Personnel Management; Leadership & Management; Marketing; Organizational Behavior; Personal Success; Skill Development; and Strategic Planning.

In response to the challenges created by the global public health crisis of COVID-19, Project MUSE is pleased to support its participating publishers in making scholarly content temporarily available for free on its platform. Project MUSE contains vetted research in the humanities and social sciences, from a variety of distinguished university presses, societies, and related not-for-profit publishers.

Among the publishers currently opting to make content free on Project MUSE are Johns Hopkins University Press (all books and journals), Ohio State University Press (all books and journals), University of Nebraska Press (all books and journals), University of North Carolina Press (all books), Temple University Press (all books), and Vanderbilt University Press (selected books). The list of publishers offering free access to content is available here.

Content that is freely available on the Project MUSE platform during the COVID-19 crisis will display a distinctive “Free” icon, different from the “OA” icon used for fully open access content on MUSE. MUSE search results, by default, include any content to which a user has access, so will offer the researcher any relevant free or OA articles and books. There are over 2,000 open access books and a small number of fully OA journals on the MUSE platform.

Over 20,000 free eBook titles from Project MUSE are also searchable on the Library Catalogue at
From a single interface, researchers can access over 810,000 ebooks and 1,350 imprints from more than 650 publishers. On average, 100,000 newly published titles are added each year from leading publishers to help libraries build dynamic collections that meet the unique needs of their community of researchers.
From our wide selection of content to our flexible acquisition models to our technology architecture designed to support today AND tomorrow, ProQuest is leading the way in ebooks.
