Grey is the New Black—Grey Literature: How to Find It?
February 22, 2021 at 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Searching the grey literature is an important part of conducting a systematic, scoping, or other comprehensive literature review. However, grey literature can often be tricky and overwhelming to search. This workshop will provide students with a greater understanding of how grey literature is defined, the benefits of searching it, and links to a number of useful sites providing access of resources relevant to students in different fields. The workshop will have a hands-on component. Session will be delivered via Zoom.
- Define what grey literature is and is not
- Justify why it is important to search grey literature when conducting knowledge syntheses
- Identify key grey literature sources
- Select grey literature sources specific to a topic and begin creating a search plan
- Articulate the process involved with producing a well-documented and transparent grey literature search
Facilitators: Aleksandra Blake & Margaret McLeod (MacOdrum Library)
