Essential Searching Skills for Librarians on Systematic Review Teams Webinar

The webinar will take you through the systematic review searching process, from confirming the need for a review and identifying appropriate databases to creating search strategies and documenting and reporting searches using PRISMA-S. PubMed is the primary database used in the session.

The heart of the webinar is developing an extensive, effective, systematic, translatable, and replicable search strategy to address a research question.

You’ll also learn how to conduct a reference interview to properly define a topic and how to translate a topic into effective search concepts. And you’ll be able to identify components of the search peer review process that have become standard in the searching community of practice.
