Course Description

Have you thought about supporting a systematic review? Have you been asked to be on a systematic review team?  Are you thinking of conducting a systematic review?

Librarians are involved in supporting systematic reviews in a growing number of ways.  Typically librarians are involved in the search process but this role is expanding. Librarians may peer review a systematic review, conduct a librarian led systematic review, be part of a systematic review team or help to educate and guide researchers through the systematic review process.

This course is designed for those that are new to the systematic review process, want to understand it better and perhaps expand their role in systematic reviews.  This course will provide an introduction to the systematic review essentials for a variety of disciplines to successfully support systematic review research.

  • Recognize the importance of project management
