This site documents all the known systematic reviews in library and infromation studies (LIS). The purpose of gathering LIS systematic reviews is to provide librarians and other information professionals with a central place to locate this information. Systematic reviews provide practitioners with an assessment of research on a particular topic, up to the point in time when the systematic review was published.
