Training

Training students, staff and employees to use the Library's printed and electronic resources is an important part of our work.

We offer training sessions in the use of electronic information resources and healthcare databases. Sessions can be for groups both large and small, or on a one-to-one basis.

Database searching

Database searches for details of journal articles can be carried out via the NHS Evidence (www.evidence.nhs.uk) Journals and Databases page (opens in a new window), using an NHS Athens ID. Please see our Electronic Resources page for help with Athens IDs.

A help sheet for the Healthcare Databases Advanced Search "Searching HDAS - a short guide" is available from the Training materials and help guides page on NICE Evidence. (Opens in a new window.)

We can also carry out information searches on your behalf, though not for educational purposes such as study assignments. Please contact us for help with Mediated Searches.
