For the spring semester, access to the Libraries will remain restricted to CMU students, staff, and faculty members due to capacity restrictions and COVID protocols. Access control to Hunt Library will be upgraded to an automated swipe-card system beginning Monday, February 15, 2021. We remind our community members to carry a CMU ID card to access facilities during open hours. Students must also reserve a seat for in-person studying.

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.
