Still undecided about attending the 2017 Health Science Librarians of Illinois Annual Conference, or already planning to go but not certain which sessions to attend? Information about the two CE (continuing education) sessions that will take place the morning of Thursday, October 26, is below. (Note that the sessions will run concurrently.)

Introduction to Systematic Reviews for Librarians

This course will present what the current state of systematic reviews methods is, how systematic reviews are different from other types of reviews, and what their potential applications are. Activities and discussions will cover how to conduct a reference interview, determine feasibility of a research question, build search strategies, and report methods specific to systematic reviews.

Instructor Susan A. Fowler, MLIS, is the Library Director at Washington University (in St. Louis) Brown School: Social Work and Public Health. Her current interests include creating reporting standards for systematic review search strategies and finding a pragmatic solution for search strategy peer review. Susan designed the first library-based systematic review service at Washington University, trained librarian colleagues in systematic review search design, and integrated the library service into the Institute of Public Health’s Systematic Review and Meta-analyses yearly course.

Worth 4.0 hours of CE credit from the Medical Library Association

Emerging Technologies for the Busy Librarian

This face-to-face course is designed to give the busy librarian an overview of emerged and emerging technologies impacting our profession. It is a survey course that will cover a variety oftechnology topics, including possibly makerspaces, augmented reality, the Internet of Things, and collaboration tools. Students, health professionals, and consumers use technologies to interact with health information daily. It is essential for librarians to investigate and experiment with these technologies to improve access to timely and relevant quality health information.

Presenter Gabe Rios, MLIS, is the director of the Ruth Lilly Medical Library, Indiana University School of Medicine. Gabe has worked with emerging technologies since the late 90s (remember the PDA?).  He has taught technology-related classes at state, regional, and national meetings over the past 16 years.

Webinar Details

Description: Including grey literature in systematic reviews is an important strategy for reducing bias in included studies, but there are significant challenges to designing and carrying out a grey literature search. Librarians can expect systematic review teams to turn to them for expertise in conducting, managing, and documenting a grey literature search. This webinar provides participants with a framework for grey literature decision-making and tips for managing the search process, so that they can deliver black and white (clear and credible) results. #mlagreylit

Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • explain the purpose of searching grey literature for a systematic review
  • assist a systematic review team in deciding on the scope and content of a grey literature search
  • modify a PubMed/MEDLINE search for grey literature
  • choose options for capturing grey literature search results that are as efficient as possible
  • document a grey literature search for publication

Presenter: Barbara Folb is the public health informationist at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System (HSLS). She has over twenty years of experience in academic and corporate libraries and has experienced the changes that systematic reviews have brought to health sciences libraries during that time. She earned her master’s of public health (MPH) in 2010 while completing a National Library of Medicine Public Health Informationist Fellowship. Since then, she has developed searches for systematic reviews on topics in public health and health policy. As part of the team that created HSLS’s in-house systematic review training, she worked on the grey literature module. That in-house training became the HSLS “Systematic Review Workshop: The Nuts and Bolts for Librarians.” She serves as an instructor for that workshop and finds that teaching about grey literature.
