Library staff can conduct work-related literature searches for patient care, clinical audit, guideline development, research and presentations using a range of biomedical databases and evidence-based information sources. Urgent requests can normally be satisfied the same day. Please email your search request or submit an online request form.
If your search is for your course, for example for an assignment, we will ask you to do the search yourself but we are happy to offer training on how to search.
