The George T. Harrell Health Sciences Library at Penn State College of Medicine began a fee-based systematic review service, a model for cost recovery, in October 2013. This article describes the library’s experience in establishing, introducing, and promoting the new service, which follows the Institute of Medicine’s recommended standards for performing systematic reviews. The goal is to share this information with librarians who are contemplating starting such a service.
