Systematic Review Training Model for Education Librarians: A Case Study Academic Article uri icon


  • Education librarians are receiving an increasing number of requests to help researchers with systematic reviews. Systematic reviews are evidence syntheses that require comprehensive, reproducible search strategies. Many of the available training programs and materials focus on systematic reviews in the health sciences, not education or the social sciences. Therefore, librarians at Texas A&M University Libraries developed and implemented a training model designed specifically for education librarians. The model consists of three components: shadowing, community of practice, and research projects. In this case study, we discuss the model, provide our reflections on the training, and describe how the model can be modified to fit other institutional contexts and social sciences disciplines.
