Barbara Folb is the public health informationist at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System (HSLS). She has over twenty years of experience in academic and corporate libraries and has experienced the changes that systematic reviews have brought to health sciences libraries during that time. She earned her master’s of public health (MPH) in 2010 while completing a National Library of Medicine Public Health Informationist Fellowship. Since then, she has developed searches for systematic reviews on topics in public health and health policy. As part of the team that created HSLS’s in-house systematic review training, she worked on the grey literature module. That in-house training became the HSLS “Systematic Review Workshop: The Nuts and Bolts for Librarians.” She serves as an instructor for that workshop and finds that teaching about grey literature three times a year does wonders for staying up to date on the topic.
