We are happy to announce that UC Berkeley campus users now have access to Embase, a biomedical and pharmacological database with over 25 million citations.
Comprised of the MEDLINE database (which is also in PubMed) and citations from over 2,000 unique-to-Embase journal titles, Embase has especially strong coverage in drug, pharmaceutical, and toxicological research, including economic evaluations.
Please see the original post on the Sheldon Margen Public Health Library News blog for more information.
