Consulting a Librarian
College and Research Services Librarians can assist with systematic literature searching for both systematic reviews and literature reviews being undertaken by academics, researchers and HDR students.
If you are new to systematic reviews, we require that you work through the FLO module Preparing for a review (15-30mins) before meeting with a librarian. This ensures you get the most from your appointment time.
If you have done a systematic review previously (or have done training from another source) please complete Design your project - checklist in preparation for your consultation.
If your systematic review is intended to inform PhD research or other examinable work, in accordance with the University’s academic integrity policy the librarian is not able to conduct the searches and translate into multiple sources.

Flinders University Librarians support the Flinders University research community in their undertaking of Systematic Review activity through the provision of online training, workshops, and consultations when required. The following support model details the extent to which this team can support requests from across the research community. It is based on a three-tier model that has been well established at other academic institutions such as Sydney University and Stanford University.
Please be aware that all requests are dependent on team capacity and workloads and that we may need to defer some requests if necessary.
A number of sources were consulted in preparing these guidelines, both national and international, with particular reference to the University of Sydney Library, see https://www.library.sydney.edu.au/research/systematic-review/downloads/SR_Service_Charter_2021.pdf
