Metasearch Engines

  • A metasearch engine is a search engine that searches multiple other search engines simultaneously and combines the results.
  • Locate evidence-based sources using a metasearch engine:
    • TRIP Database
      TRIP (Turning Research Into Practice) Database performs a simple search of more than 75 databases, including CDSR Abstracts, NGC, Bandolier, Evidence-Based Medicine, DARE, POEMs, etc. for access to evidence-based material as well as articles from peer-reviewed journals.
    • SUMSearch 2
      Simultaneously searches for studies (original studies and systematic reviews) and practice guidelines from PubMed, National Guideline Clearinghouse, and DARE and merged into one list sorted by year of publication.
