Information Retrieval for International Disability and Rehabilitation Research

SEDL’s Center on Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation Research recently hosted a webcast called Information Retrieval for International Disability and Rehabilitation Research. Staff from the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE) discussed the importance of accessing international research for systematic reviews and research synthesis. The webcast included information about CIRRIE's database of international research, which demonstrates what has been found to be useful in other countries. Presenters also shared tips on how to use CIRRIE's database to its fullest potential. An archive of the webcast is now available online.
