The Librarians can conduct literature and evidence searches on your behalf to support with clinical practice, service development and management, research and teaching.
While library staff are happy to train medical and nursing students to use NHS sources of literature, unfortunately we are not able to undertake literature searches for you – most of the time you will be required to do this as part of your course. Please see our training page for a list of the courses we run or contact the library for further information.
How the service works
The search results will comprise of a list of references, with abstracts and links to full text items where available. The search strategy, including a list of resources used, will be included. The search results will not be summarised, graded or categorised in order of importance.
Your results will normally be emailed to you within 5-10 working days. If you need the results sooner than this, please contact the library to discuss your needs.
How to make a request
E-mail your request to the library at firstname.lastname@example.org
Library staff may contact you if more information is required prior to the search being carried out.
Finally, please be aware that we occasionally follow up searches to ask how the information was used and what, if any, changes were made as a result of using this service. Your feedback is important to us and will help us to improve our service.
If you need help access these resources, please see our training page for a list of the courses we run or contact the library for further information.
