Sign up to one of our free skills sessions

Did you know that alongside sessions built into the curriculum, the library offers a rolling programme of open skills sessions you can sign-up to to help you make the most of library resources?

Our courses, still currently online, range from focusing on key databases such as Medline and CINAHL to find health literature to support your learning, assignments, dissertations, practice or research, to use of specialist resources such as RefWorks to help you manage your references. You can learn in-depth advanced search techniques to underpin systematic reviews and, new for 2022, we are offering sessions on the Web of Science platform which, uniquely, provides a range of multi-disciplinary searchable citation indexes- ideal for researchers wishing to track literature in their fields.

All these databases, and more, are available through our A-Z databases page, via NHS OpenAthens accounts for our NHS members or network logins for University members; targetted sessions are available for all our key audiences including NHS staff, researchers, academic staff and, of course, students.

Here’s what people have said about our courses:

I am very happy for having this opportunity to learn such an important skill from a great teacher!

Found the interactive part of the session ( ie doing my own searches) very helpful
