Identifying the Evidence for Systematic Reviews: an introductory training course for librarians & information professionals

The popular one-day course for information specialists and librarians on supporting systematic reviews in health and social care will be hosted by the Centre for Reviews & Dissemination, University of York.

The course will be led by:

  • Carol Lefebvre, Co-Convenor of the Cochrane Information Retrieval Methods Group
  • Melissa Harden, Information Specialist at the Centre for Reviews & Dissemination
  • Kath Wright, Information Services Manager at the Centre for Reviews & Dissemination

The day is a mixture of presentations, practical exercises and quizzes, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.

By the end of the day participants will know about:

  • systematic review methods
  • planning an appropriate search strategy
  • locating and using methodological search filters
  • documenting the search process
  • managing references using bibliographic software
  • the role of the information professional in the systematic review team

Pre-requisites for course attendance:

  • experience of bibliographic database searching
  • familiarity with MeSH indexing, Boolean operators, truncation and other basic search tools and techniques 

The course does not include a “hands on” database searching session so prior knowledge or experience in these areas is essential to get the most from the day.
