      Background: Librarians at the University of Maryland Health Sciences & Human Services Library (HS/ HSL) have assisted investigators working on systematic reviews in the past, but a formal and marketable program did not exist. Although systematic reviews were being conducted on campus, librarian involvement was infrequent. With the goal of better serving researchers on campus, a team of librarians developed a structured systematic review service. Objectives: • Develop best practices in conducting and supporting systematic reviews. • Enhance researchers’ productivity through librarian’s role as expert searcher. • Collaborate and build partnerships with diverse constituents throughout the University. • Provide librarians with opportunities for authorship and refinement of expert searching skills as members of a systematic review team.
    • Integrate assessment and evaluation into library services and programs
