The Dana Medical Library is once again running its popular workshop series on Systematic Reviews. Join us! Workshops are open to all UVM and University of Vermont Medical Center students, staff, and faculty. Unless otherwise noted, preregistration is not required for library workshops. Workshops are held on Wednesdays in the Dana Classroom, room 108.
Introduction to Systematic Reviews September 28th, 2016, Noon – 1pm
This workshop will contrast the rigorous methodology used to produce systematic reviews with other approaches to reviewing the literature. Attendees will have the opportunity to begin constructing their own systematic review protocol, enabling them to both evaluate systematic reviews, and participate in authoring a systematic review. Instructors: Donna O’Malley, MLS & Gary Atwood, MSLIS
Searching for Systematic Reviews October 5th, Noon to 1pm
Systematic reviews summarize, appraise, and interpret evidence from healthcare research, primarily from journal articles. They can be the most efficient way to bring the results of clinical research into clinical decision making. This workshop will explore databases and methodologies for locating high-quality systematic reviews. Instructor: Donna O’Malley, MLS
Finding Gray Literature October 12th, Noon to 1pm
The gray literature, including resources such as conference proceedings, technical reports, and government documents, can provide valuable information that isn’t found in the published journal literature. This presentation will cover the what, why, when, and how to search the gray literature. Instructors: Nancy Bianchi, MSLIS and Gary Atwood, MA, MSLIS
