Systematic Reviews Caucus

Members: 717     Discussions: 1922     Files: 10


Welcome to the public page of the MLA Systematic Review Caucus! The purpose of this Caucus is to support and educate librarians involved in the demanding, increasingly popular and evolving research method of systematic reviews and meta-analysis. To that end, we offer:

  • a vibrant forum for peer input into questions from fellow librarians about systematic reviews;
  • a regularly updated list of resources for systematic reviews as well as tips and FAQs; and
  • Systematic Review specialization information.

In addition, we regularly post news items and features on MLAConnect.

If you’d like to help us with caucus tasks and initiatives, we welcome your involvement - please contact the chair or chair-elect! We’d also love to hear from you on our forum!

Best regards,

Stephanie Roth. AHIP, Chair

Leila Ledbetter, AHIP, Chair-Elect
