OLA Poster: Systematic Reviews and the Evolving Role of Librarians

Poster developed by: Rebecca Hutchinson and Shannon Gordon; University of Waterloo

The demand for systematic reviews (SR) in research intensive health related departments is rapidly increasing, and academic librarians have the expertise necessary to support these comprehensive reviews. In Summer 2013, three uWaterloo health librarians surveyed faculty on their current and future systematic review work. Through this process we determined researcher expectations of librarian support and identified multiple ways to meet their needs. Our poster will illustrate possible librarian roles in the systematic review process, and how our expertise can be used towards knowledge creation.
