As your librarian, I'm here to help you succeed in your systematic review project, and specifically to coach you through your search process.
This guide is designed to introduce you to some important concepts and skills for systematic searching. You'll want to work through the content sequentially to be prepared to do an effective initial search.
Once you've viewed and engaged with all the materials, and you've done some searching on your own, you'll be able to book your research consultation with me.
If you have questions as you work through this guide, don't hesitate to contact me. Good luck with your research, and I'm looking forward to working with you!
Accessing library resources from off-campus:
Your NetID is your login to all library databases and for requesting materials.
In your searches, it's inevitable that you'll find citations for articles you want to read that UConn doesn't have. However, you can get those items through our Interlibrary Services! Articles (and book chapters) can generally be obtained as PDFs in a day or so, and the service is free to you. Learn more about this service and create your ILLiad account at the link below:
