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.

Funding permitting, we hope to continue hosting institutes in the future. Visit our website for the most recent information on upcoming iterations of the institute and application information.
