Developing a Systematic Review Service: Blueprints for Success

Sunday, May 5
2:00 PM - 3:25 PM
Room: Grand Ballroom A (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)

The body of biomedical literature has experienced an exponential growth in the number of systematic reviews published each year, which require the expertise of a librarian or other information specialist. To meet mounting institutional demands for librarian collaboration, many libraries have developed formal systematic review literature services. This session aims to bring librarians with established systematic review literature search service models, at different phases of implementation, to the table for a collaborative discussion and peer sharing of experiences, lessons learned, as well as guidance for librarians seeking to make informed decisions in how to structure similar services at their institutions.
