Registration for the next offering of “Systematic Reviews: Opportunities for Librarians” will open on Monday, July 10, at 11:00 AM CST. Registration is capped at 20 participants. This session will be held online between Monday, October 30 and Wednesday, November 15, and it will then finish in person on Thursday, November 16, and Friday, November 17 at the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the University of Michigan. Upon completion, the course is worth 20 CE credits. A brief description of the class’s content and structure is below.

The course provides information professionals with foundational knowledge about systematic reviews and an opportunity to engage in high-level discussions with other librarians about our involvement in such projects. The class runs on a flipped classroom model where didactic material is presented in an asynchronous online format over a period of two weeks. Following the two-week online curriculum, you’ll join us at University of Michigan’s Taubman Health Sciences Library for a two-day intensive workshop. Through hands-on experience with resources, activities, and discussions, you’ll develop a toolkit of resources and strategies, and an action plan to take back to your home institution for greater involvement in systematic reviews.
