The Norecopa website (http://norecopa.no) provides information on global resources relevant to the Three Rs (Replacement, Reduction, Refinement). It includes several databases of relevance to education and training:
NORINA – information on approx. 3,500 products which can be used as alternatives or supplements to animal use in education and training
TextBase – literature within Laboratory Animal Science, including anatomy and dissection manuals
3R Guide – a global collection of guidelines, information centres, journals and email lists.
The approx. 6,000 pages on the site can be searched simultaneously, using the built-in intelligent search engine. Numerous filters can be applied to narrow the search results.
