Grey Literature: Spotlight on COVID-19 Content

What is grey literature and how do you incorporate it into your work? Stop feeling overwhelmed by the Internet and let the library help you with defining and managing your grey literature needs!  In this session we will focus on identifying and finding COVID-19 grey literature.

Learning outcomes:

  • Define grey literature

  • Describe the differences between grey and published literature

  • Understand the value added provided by grey literature

  • Identify grey literature resources for finding COVID-19 research (e.g. clinical trial registries, clinical practice guidelines and preprint databases

Recommended for: Staff, physicians and/or researchers looking to incorporate COVID-19 evidence from outside traditional resources into their work. This course is valuable to staff engaged in the creation of knowledge resources (guidelines, policies, pamphlets, original research).
