Event description

Description

** Back by popular demand, after the successful event in May 2017. This event is free to NoWAL members (paid for by NoWAL). **

As places are limited, please discuss with your teams and line manager first as we are likely only to be able to accommodate one person per institution.

This interactive workshop on Systematic Review (SR) will be led by Michelle Maden from the University of Liverpool and will look at:

  • what an SR is

  • how an SR differs from a normal review

  • searching approaches to inform the 'traditional review' and also targeted approaches (e.g. cluster searching, theory searching, complex topic searching) for different types of SRs (realist, mixed-methods)

  • looking at guidance for conducting/reporting searches for SRs, scoping searches for SRs, standards (PRESS) and documenting the search process

Hands-on time will allow you to have a go at the different searching techniques.

Please note: You will need to bring a laptop or other device to allow you to participate in the hands-on element. You will need to login on your device using Eduroam.

Please get in touch with Nicky Freeman (n.freeman100@salford.ac.uk) if you think this might be a problem for you.

This event is aimed at subject librarians who support health (whether as the main part of their role, or supporting a subject aligned to health some of the time). It is suitable for those already familiar with thesaurus (MeSH) searching.

The workshop is for a maximum of 20 people, shared across the NoWAL and LIHNN networks (roughly 10 each).
