The speakers will discuss the nuts and bolts of lending Wi-Fi hotspots including: service provider information, data usage, coverage area, circulation procedures, costs, patron response, and future plans. The presenters will share the benefits—and potential pitfalls—of Wi-Fi hotspot circulation applicable to public, school, and academic libraries in the region.

Including grey literature in systematic reviews is an important strategy for reducing bias in included studies, but there are significant challenges to designing and carrying out a grey literature search. Librarians can expect systematic review teams to turn to them for expertise in conducting, managing, and documenting a grey literature search. This webinar provides participants with a framework for grey literature decision-making and tips for managing the search process, so that they can deliver black and white (clear and credible) results.
