Faculty Experiences With Grey Literature: A Mixed Methods Approach

Published Date






As academic librarians, we are acutely aware of the challenges in locating grey literature. In our recent mixed-methods research we surveyed and conducted interviews to investigate how tenured and tenure-track faculty at the University of Minnesota experience grey literature in terms of finding, citing, and creating. The poster will share the preliminary results of our research and will help attendees understand 1) the multiple different types of resources that are considered grey literature as well as 2) other aspects of grey literature including why it is desirable in evidence synthesis as researchers attempt to address publication bias.



This poster was presented at the 2018 Minnesota Library Association Conference.
