Cochrane/EBM Reviews transitioning to new interface

Beginning October 22, the Cochrane/EBM Reviews, including the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, will transition from Ovid (UM-MEDSEARCH) to the Wiley interface.  The same Cochrane resources will be available from Wiley, the provider of the full Cochrane Library content. The change will be completed by November 1.
