Students Doing Systematic Reviews: What You Need to Know
- Every student doing a systematic review consults with a librarian primarily for expert searching and process guidance. Good communication between the supervisor, student, and librarian is essential in ensuring efficiency and clarity of scope and expectations. In this session we will talk about how to put students in the best position for success at every stage of the review process. This session will be of interest if you are a faculty member whose students are doing systematic reviews, or if you are a student who is working on a systematic review.
- Lindsay Alcock, Head, Public Services, Health Sciences Library

New Research in Old Records, hosted by Memorial Archives
- Three researchers from different disciplines conducting research in archives at Memorial will talk about their projects and the impact of archives on their work.

They will also talk about the highs and lows of conducting archival research at Memorial and consider how collections might be made more accessible. An archivist from each of the archives represented in the session - Archives and Special Collections (QEII Library), the Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore and Language Archive (HSS) and the Maritime History Archive (HSS) - will join the speakers for a questions at the end.
