Introducing: Systematic Search Practice Sets

Informationists at the University of Michigan Taubman Health Sciences Library created the "Systematic Search Practice Sets" site as a place to help information professionals bridge the experience gap between systematic search training sessions and engagement in a real live evidence synthesis project. While we all learn "on the job", it can be challenging to find ways to practice systematic searching in an asynchronous, instant feedback, self-driven format with lower stakes than an active evidence synthesis project.

This webinar will start with an overview of search lessons learned over a decade of teaching the U-M "Systematic Reviews for Librarians" workshop, and then introduce participants to the "Systematic Search Practice Sets" open Canvas site.
