Due to severe weather and school closures on February 24th, an additional make-up class for “Literature Searching for Systematic Reviews” is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8th at 3:00 pm in the DeFriese conference room on the first floor.

This is open to any staff member or affiliate of UNC. See below for more information about the class. Please RSVP if you plan to attend to

This is a complex topic; therefore this class will be a “tip of the iceberg” overview with referrals to additional campus resources.

2) Literature searching in the context of the systematic review process
3) How librarians can assist with decision-making during the systematic review process
4) Availability of citation managers such as EndNote and RefWorks to store and sort citations, and assist in writing manuscripts
5) UNC Health Sciences Library tutorials, classes, and referrals to expert subject librarians
6) Overview of a completed AHRQ Effective Health Care program comparative effectiveness review on drugs for alcohol use disorders
7) Example live searching in PubMed and The Cochrane Library as time permits
8) Your questions!
