What You'll Learn

Our November 2021 workshop will be conducted fully online via Zoom.

With its mix of online and in-person instruction, you should expect to leave the workshop with a solid foundation of the systematic review process, effective methods for conducting and communicating about  systematic reviews, and concrete strategies to demonstrate your expertise at your institution. 

This course will cover:

  • The basics of a systematic review — study types and methodologies
  • Librarian roles on systematic review teams
  • Selecting databases and developing search strategies
  • Grey literature resources and considerations
  • Data management, documentation, and writing for publication
  • Strategies to establish your presence and expertise at your home institution

By the end of the course, you should be able to identify:

  • Resources for published literature
  • Resources for grey literature and unpublished studies
  • Techniques for constructing thorough and replicable searches
  • Techniques for data management and reporting
  • Benefits and barriers to librarian participation on a systematic review team

You’ll also have the opportunity to develop an action plan to establish yourself as a recognized resource for systematic review expertise at your home institution.
