  Gathering some literature on (systematic) reviews
Systematic reviews are all the rage right now and they come up frequently in the lit searches I do for some of my customers. There's also evidence-based librarianship which is now looking at how to do this for LIS. {btw- I am not planning to make anything of this as of right now, but too many things appeared at once for me not to note it}

These two by Blake and Pratt are about the process of creating the review:

Blake, C., & Pratt, W. (2006). Collaborative information synthesis I: A model of information behaviors of scientists in medicine and public health. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, vol.57, no.13, pp.1740-1749, 57(13), 1740-1749.

Blake, C., & Pratt, W. (2006). Collaborative information synthesis II: Recommendations for information systems to support synthesis activities. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, vol.57, no.14, pp.1888-1895, 57(14), 1888-1895.

This article is how to find them:
Wong, S. S. -., Wilczynski, N. L., & Haynes, R. B. (2006). Comparison of top-performing search strategies for detecting clinically sound treatment studies and systematic reviews in MEDLINE and EMBASE. Journal of the Medical Library Association ( JMLA ), 94(4), http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1629423

And then today I saw on Journalology this editorial on systematic reviews:
The PLoS Medicine Editors (2007) Many Reviews Are Systematic but Some Are More Transparent and Completely Reported than Others. PLoS Med 4(3): e147 doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.0040147

and this article:
Moher D, Tetzlaff J, Tricco AC, Sampson M, Altman DG (2007) Epidemiology and Reporting Characteristics of Systematic Reviews. PLoS Med 4(3): e78 doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.0040078

Update:
Don't forget retrieval of systematic reviews
Lin, J., & Demner-Fushman, D. (2006). The role of knowledge in conceptual retrieval: A study in the domain of clinical medicine. SIGIR '06: Proceedings of the 29th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, Seattle, Washington, USA. 99-106. Retrieved April 13, 2007 from http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1148170.1148191
