The University Libraries is pleased to announce a new service to support evidence synthesis across disciplines. Evidence synthesis includes methods such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses, scoping reviews, systematic mapping reviews, rapid reviews and other systematic or structured approaches to literature reviews. These methods can be applied to understand what existing research can tell us about what works or doesn’t work for policy and practice and identify areas of knowledge gaps and knowledge saturation.
 
Librarians trained in evidence synthesis methods can provide support in many stages of the review process. For example, we can provide guidance on which methodology best suits your research goals, recommend information sources for searching, design comprehensive and reproducible search strategies, and provide support and guidance for information management throughout the process.
