iCAM and EBM Resources

For UConn affiliates, several excellent subscription databases on iCAM modalities are available from UConn Health Library:

  • Natural Medicines merged with Natural Standard in March 2015 and is now one site combining all content
  • Consumer Lab*    use Internet Explorer or Firefox (not Chrome)

Cochrane Library can also be searched by selecting from a list of the appropriate Cochrane Review Group(s).
