Sarah T. Jewell and Margaret Jane Foster, AHIP, authors of Assembling the Pieces of a Systematic Review: A Guide for Librarians, team up again to explore curated article sets, MEDLINE search issues specific to platforms, and epidemiological, clinical, and policy data sets in this rapidly changing COVID-19 information environment in COVID-19 Searching: Strategies and Sources on April 14.
Each brings her own perspective: Foster, Medical Sciences Library, Texas A&M University–College Station, is an academic librarian serving medical, veterinary, and public health faculty and students, and Jewell, Medical Library, Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, Bronx, NY, is a hospital librarian helping clinicians treat patients.
Participants will be invited to respond to online polls and share their search tips, database news, and favorite sources for COVID-19 information. This will be a highly interactive thirty-minute session!
