Going Grey: Strategies for Searching the Grey Literature

Going Grey: Strategies for Searching the Grey Literature Online

Searching for grey literature is an important aspect of many literature reviews. However, due to the high volume of grey literature produced, an abundance of grey literature types are available, and a multitude of sources that can be searched- grey literature searching can be especially challenging. This workshop will focus on strategies to develop a grey literature search plan, and how Advanced Google could be leveraged for targeted website searching. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define grey literature
  • Identify grey literature search objectives
  • Describe how to develop a grey literature search plan
