Mark your calendars for the call for applications, which will open March 1st with a deadline of March 15. Space is limited and applications will be reviewed. 

    This training is designed to introduce librarians and information specialists to the R programming language using RStudio, with a particular focus on using R for evidence synthesis. litsearchr is an R package designed to assist in term harvesting and search strategy development. You will gain hands-on experience with these tools, providing a foundation for building your skills, automating aspects of search strategy development and generating reproducible code for evidence synthesis projects.
