Abstract: Over the recent years the electronic information resources, originally developed to offer a potential solution to the exponential increase of scientific publications and, thus, to the related difficulties to identify the desired information, have shown a similar proliferation. How best to search for information specifically on the 3Rs (replacement, reduction, refinement of animal use) in the World Wide Web that is heterogenic, constantly changing and growing? ECVAM has undertaken this project to provide a comprehensive inventory of relevant information resources for this topic area, at the same time providing search strategies and user guidance to facilitate the location of the desired information and to provide an answer to the question: What can I find where? The ECVAM Search Guide is aimed at untrained database users and will be most relevant, for examaple, where ethical committees require researchers to carry out a comprehensive search before carrying out any animal experiment.
