We can help with research and study – the library is here to support all staff and students.
Library staff can provide a professional evidence search service or training on how to carry out your own evidence search.
Please contact the library about how we can help – we are happy to support you in your research, course work or general enquiry.
Evidence search databases
NHS and healthcare staff/students have access to various search databases with an NHS OpenAthens account:
- NHS Knowledge and Library Search Hub
- Native Databases (PubMed, ProQuest, EBSCO and Ovid)
- The Cochrane Library
- HDAS (to close down in March 2022)
Request an evidence search
Do you need information to support clinical practice or your research project? Looking for evidence to update a policy or guidelines? Do you require articles for your teaching session? We can help by carrying out a evidence search on your behalf.
Request evidence search training
If you are undertaking a course of study we can support you by providing training in how to carry out a evidence search. This can be a 1:1 or small group session at a time convenient to you during library opening hours (Mon-Fri 8.30am – 5.00pm).
We aim to give you the knowledge you need to carry out your own research, which is an essential part of the skills needed for your course of study, whatever level you are studying at.
