ALIA HLA: Advanced Searching workshop (Brisbane)

Primary tabs

ALIA HLA will be hosting this full day workshop which will be presented by Carol Lefebvre from the UK.

This full day session will provide opportunities to learn new techniques, to discuss best approaches, to share insights and to assess variations in current best practice. The workshop will be facilitated by Carol Lefebvre who is experienced in literature searching to inform systematic reviews and HTAs and in conducting research into the evidence base for information retrieval.

We hope to make the session as interactive and participative as possible so you are encouraged to bring along a computer or device for searching. It will also comprise presentations and discussion. More information about what the workshop will cover to follow.
