The Countway Library of Medicine Research and Instruction team provides mediated literature searching for Harvard patrons, subject to librarian availability, as a major component of our review service.
A mediated search is any search of the literature developed and carried out by a librarian on behalf of a user requesting the search. Mediated searches may be carried out to support:
- Systematic reviews
- Scoping Reviews
- Other types of knowledge synthesis reports
- Literature-based investigations
