The Library & Systematic Reviews

The Library & Systematic Reviews: hints, tricks and what you need to know to make a real difference


An event by Health Libraries Inc. 


Presented by Lorena Romero, Senior Librarian Alfred Health The Ian Potter Library.  

With over 20 years experience of working in health libraries, Lorena has worked in many roles during this time but it is her excellence in searching the literature and her eye for detail that has seen her co-author three Cochrane Systematic Reviews, as well as over a dozen other SRs.  


This presentation will focus on the practical side of Systematic Reviews; how does the librarian assist the review team, how do you perform a well structured and thorough systematic review search strategy and how do you get your name on that final product! Lorena will also discuss the techniques she uses to teach Systematic Reviews to her clients and the impact and value this has on her library service.
