Mission: The Briscoe Library's liaison librarians support evidence-based health care practice and research at UT Health San Antonio by providing guidance and expertise to those conducting structured literature reviews, such as systematic, scoping, integrative, or rapid reviews.
Service: The liaison librarians offer two tiers of support (see Guide for more information). We require that review authors correctly attribute the librarian who assists them according to the level of participation.
