DLHS Opens Door to COVID Resources

Covid-19 Best Evidence Front Door, a searchable resource, has been created by Taubman Health Sciences Library and the Department of Learning Health Sciences 

A new open-source knowledge resource developed at the University of Michigan by DLHS and Tubman Health Sciences Library is now available at

This "Front Door" provides direct access to high quality meta-analyses, literature syntheses, and clinical guidelines from multiple sources. The intent is to make this evidence findable and accessible with a single search, avoiding the need for knowledge-seekers to locate and then explore each source's website sequentially.

As part of the Taubman Library information environment, the Front Door is a growing resource. Currently it allows searchable access to 364 documents from 61 different sources but will be updated frequently as new information becomes available.

The Covid-19 Best Evidence Front Door was created by accessing trusted sources and is a complement to other resources that function similarly but focus on the primary literature.
