Increasing interest in and awareness of the importance of clinical trials and their results has seen the development of a large number of trials registers and trials results registers. Trials registers provide information on current and recently completed research and results registers provide results of completed research, often before the results are available through traditional published sources. Trials registers are essential for research synthesis (systematic reviews, health technology assessments and comparative effectiveness research). They provide important information for patients wishing to participate in clinical trials and inform product development and research commissioning. Trials registers are in constant development and provide challenges to librarians in terms of searching and record management. This half-day course will highlight key trials registers and trials results registers, including ClinicalTrials.gov, the World Health Organization’s Clinical Trials Search Portal and industry registers, and will offer practical advice on searching registers and managing register records.
