SnowGlobe ( is an application designed to expedite the literature searching process for systematic reviews and meta-analyses. SnowGlobe allows the user to input a list of titles, PMIDs, or DOIs and then returns the list of articles associated with their citation network (both references and citations), while removing duplicate entries. Because SnowGlobe uses Microsoft Academic as its source material, researchers from across the disciplines would benefit from integrating this tool into their literature searching processes. This workshop will include an introduction to SnowGlobe, a demonstration of some of SnowGlobe’s features, and time for attendees to try using the application themselves. 

This workshop will be held online via Zoom and hosted by Becca Greenstein and Sean McWeeny.
