How Librarians Can Help

Librarians can help with:

  • Find existing systematic reviews to inform your own  development.
  • Identify relevant databases and grey literature resources for conducting searches related to your topic.
  • Design and implement comprehensive search strategies to maximize retrieval of relevant literature.
  • Use citation management software, such as Zotero, and Mendeley to manage reference gathering and selection of literature.
  • Search for hard-to-find full text articles for screening and review.
  • Write the methods section of your systematic review.
