Rapid Systematic Reviews

If you're efficient and methodical I don't see why you couldn't complete an SR in good time.  The number of results is a part of this, of course.  Some rare searches may bring back a few thousand, but I bet a good number of strategies would benefit from a more balanced eye than a sensitive one.  I try to get this across whenever I'm chatting about SRs to ppl, including those who attend our workshop.

Systematic Review Talk

 Earlier today a colleague and I gave a talk about systematic reviews as part of the Emergent Research Series. The thing below captures some of the talk and comments of those in the audience.

Challenges and Opportunities

My partner recently wrote a brief piece (pdf) for TYL about her experiences at legal aid.  While it doesn't directly pertain to libraries, I'm discovering that pulling ideas/strategies from other fields gives me fresh insight into my own work.  That's what happened here.
