Love Data Week

Every year around Valentine’s Day, universities and libraries around the world participate in Love Data Week (February 8 - 12, 2021), an effort to raise awareness related to managing, sharing, preserving, and reusing research data. The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries is no exception! This year, we’ll be offering a host of virtual events and online engagement activities with the theme “Exploring your Relationship with Data,” and encouraging the CMU community to consider the importance of loving and caring for their research data!

New Evidence Synthesis Service

The University Libraries is pleased to announce a new service to support evidence synthesis across disciplines. Evidence synthesis includes methods such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses, scoping reviews, systematic mapping reviews, rapid reviews and other systematic or structured approaches to literature reviews. These methods can be applied to understand what existing research can tell us about what works or doesn’t work for policy and practice and identify areas of knowledge gaps and knowledge saturation.

How To: Request Digital Scans of Print Items
