Systematic Review Task Force Report


In today’s busy research university library, many advanced level researchers need specialized research support. Literature review workshops have been very popular at the UMD Libraries in the last couple of years. Systematic reviews, originally relevant for research in medical research, are a type of literature review that is getting increasingly commonly used in all other sciences where data are collected and published in the literature. UMD Libraries evaluated the feasibility of offering Systematic Review services to the UMD community and beyond. In this report, short and long term recommendations are provided to enhance the service.
