MLA Webinar Viewing: Finding Grey Lit for Systematic Reviews: Can It Be More Black and White?

March 22nd, 2-3:30pm
Register for a live, in person viewing of the MLA webinar, Flexing Your Powerhouse Librarian Muscles: The Foundations of Effective Project Management. This webinar will be shown at UMass Medical School in the Lamar Soutter Library.

Presenter: Barbara Folb
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
