Decolonising of Grey Literature

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar


Grey Literature searching can sometimes risk retrieving overwhelming amounts of UK/US/European focused content. Lancaster has students and researchers working with projects in Africa, India, Malaysia and ASEAN countries, and the Library needed to identify resources and guidance that added a 'Decolonised' approach to Grey Literature searching, especially when supporting increases in Qualitative Systematic Reviews. John will discuss some of the issues of web-based grey literature accessible by search engines, and solutions to mitigate issues and systematically search this content. John Barbrook is the Faculty Librarian for Health, Medicine, Science and Technology at Lancaster University.
