Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic sparked a dramatic increase in publishing, including the dissemination of scientific research in preprints, press releases and news stories, as well as the creation of new and specialised databases and search portals. This challenged traditional systems and standards for organization and searching. This webinar describes the primary initiatives undertaken by the Librarian Reserve Corps to streamline efforts and encourage sharing and collaboration among partners to inform the evidence-base health information response to COVID-19, focusing on the evolution and preliminary results of two key projects: 1) The development of best practices for searching during public health emergencies; 2) A database validation study of specialized COVID-19 literature databases, jointly led with the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technology in Health.
