Information and literature search services

We can perform searches for quality healthcare information from journal articles, book chapters, reports and a wide range of electronic resources.

We are happy to look information up on your behalf, if lack of time, confidence or any other reason should prevent you from visiting the library. In addition we are equally happy to train you (in group or in one-to-one sessions) in searching our electronic and print resources.

Search results (complete with the detailed strategy we use, abstracts and links to full-text items when available) are delivered via email, by post or can be collected.

To obtain information or for a literature search, please fill in the online information or literature search request form.

Training sessions to teach you how to perform your own searches are also available. Please see our training sessions for more details.
