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.
Working on a text mining project but have trouble scraping text content from publications? We are happy to introduce ProQuest TDM Studio, a web-based, collaborative text and data mining platform that allows you to access and analyze large amounts of text data in the ProQuest database in a Jupyter Notebook environment.

In response to COVID-19 and the unique needs of a hybrid semester, the Libraries have pursued a number of options to provide remote access to library print materials. As a result of these efforts, users can now request scans of chapters or specific pages of print materials contained within the Libraries’ catalog to be sent to them via email.
To request scans of library materials:
Controlled digital lending (CDL) enables our library to scan and lend a digitized version of a book in lieu of a physical copy, in a controlled manner that precludes copying or redistribution.
