About

The library and the evidence-based healthcare database called the Cochrane Library are both named after the late Professor Archie Cochrane, who worked for many years in the Cardiff area. He promoted the concept of the randomised controlled trial and the need for evidence based practice. The Cochrane Archive contains memorabilia relating to his life and work. More details on application to the librarian.
