Systematic Searching for Comprehensive Literature Reviews

Systematic Searching for Comprehensive Literature Reviews

Conducting a comprehensive literature review in today’s world of ever expanding publications can be overwhelming. Join in this session to develop a systematic approach for your literature review searches. Explore and identify key information sources for your topic - whether within your field or beyond. Trial and develop your search techniques with tips to maximize results. Discuss a plan to document your search so that you can recreate your results anytime. Try out alert features in library databases or via other sources to help you stay up to date during your project. Find out about Subject Specialist librarians at VT Libraries and more contacts for future needs.
