May 12 COVID-19 Conversation: Critical Appraisal of COVID-19 Research

Methods and best practices for critical appraisal are well established, but the rapid pace of publication during the COVID-19 pandemic is throwing the rule book out the window. Or is it? Join leaders from the Critical Appraisal Institute for Librarians (CAIFL) for ideas, tips, and discussion on critically appraising the literature in the era of COVID-19. Marie Ascher, Health Sciences Library, New York Medical College–Valhalla; Abraham Wheeler, AHIP, MSU Libraries, Michigan State University–East Lansing; Rachel Pinotti, AHIP, Levy Library, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY; and Amy Blevins, Ruth Lilly Medical Library, Indiana University School of Medicine–Indianapolis, will examine COVID-19 research.

This is the eighth and final session of our series of free, live, online conversations, Coping and Caring in the Time of COVID-19. These weekly conversations for MLA members and the wider health information professional community are designed to help you address professional and personal pain points related to the current crisis.
