  • 1.  New ACRL Evidence Synthesis Resource Guide

    Dear all,

    I'm happy to announce a new resource guide developed by members of the ACRL Evidence Synthesis Methods Interest Group.

    This guide provides resources for librarians and information specialists supporting and learning about evidence synthesis across disciplines, including many resources that can be useful to share with research teams and during consultations. You'll find information about how to make suggestions in the guide.

    Feel free to pass this along to colleagues--it is openly available!
