Coinciding (approximately) with their 100 millionth search, Trip has announced that the latest version of their website has been released.
It’s a complete overhaul with a new design (including logo), new features and some powerful new tools (including a PICO search interface). They have produced a brief screencast to demonstrate some of the new features http://www.screenr.com/mCj8 but it’s probably best to try the site yourself – http://www.tripdatabase.com
If you aren’t familiar with Trip, it’s a free online database designed to provide integrated results from a variety of clinical resources including evidence-based synopses, systematic reviews, guidelines and original articles. Trip searches multiple resources, including but not limited to PubMed, National Guideline Clearinghouse, NICE, and Cochrane.
You’ll notice that there’s an option for creating an account for Trip, but it isn’t required. You can simply click the “x” on the top right corner of the pop-up box and start searching. Since Trip includes both free and subscription based resources, you may need to locate full text in Hardin Library resources after identifying the citation in Trip.
As always, if you have any questions of comments, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
