Evidence Synthesis Institute for Librarians

Funded by the Institute for Library and Museum Services (IMLS), the Evidence Synthesis Institute for Librarians is aimed at library staff supporting evidence syntheses in topics outside of the health sciences. Jointly coordinated by librarians from University of Minnesota, Cornell University, and Carnegie Mellon University, this project will cover:

  • overview of systematic reviews and similar methodologies,
  • guidelines and standards,
  • search strategy development,
  • software tools,
  • quality assessment, and
  • systematic review services.

There will be 6 total institutes starting in spring 2021. The 2021 institutes will be virtual, and we have intentions to host in-person training in the future (pandemic permitting). Visit our website for updates on upcoming interations of the institute and application information.
