High demand for systematic review training in medical libraries led to the development of a digital “toolbox” at the Health Sciences Library of the John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii at Manoa. This collection included original written content coupled with expert-led video tutorials from various medical libraries, organized by process stages. Customized LibGuides provided good content management and delivery of resources. Google Analytics provided useful statistics related to utilization and trends. There was overwhelming use of the toolbox, with two sections viewed the most: Data Extraction and Quality Assessment. Underused section resources may be redundant and duplicated in other campuswide LibGuides. This collection complemented workshop curricula as well as provided guidance asynchronously. Future interview and observational research into user navigation will uncover how users navigate among toolbox sections and which resources are being used.
