We are here to assist you with your information skills whatever your current level of skills, regardless of whether you are a new undergraduate, researching for dissertations or theses, or academic staff starting on a new research project. Please consult our information skills guides on the right to help you use the Library's resources effectively.
For particular advice on resources and services applicable to you, please refer to our pages specifically for academic staff, researchers or current students. We also have pages listing particular services for part-time students, distance learners, disabled users and visitors.
The following page was specifically designed for revision of the Medical Database workshops for Stage 1 Medicine delivered in the Epiphany Term . It contains online tutorials introducing users to two key medical databases, Medline and Embase.
The aim of this workshop is to broaden your knowledge of information resources and to help you select appropriate ones to support your work for the student selected component (SSC). It builds on the medical databases session earlier this year which covered using Medline and other databases via Ovid Online. This page contains tutorials for new resources and the chance to revise your knowledge of resources such as Medline and Cochrane Library.
The following training is for use by all students studying medicine, but was specifically designed to be used in conjunction with the EBM lecture on "Finding the Evidence" given in year 1. The page contains two tutorials for key EBM resources, as well as providing links to other free resources for this field.
This page is for use by all Medicine undergraduates and is linked to the Introduction to the Library workshop in October. Please feel free to work through it at your pace and in your own time to familiarise yourself with library services and resources.
This page is for use by all School of Medicine, Pharmacy & Health postgraduates but is specifically linked to the sessions delivered Autumn 2012. Please feel free to work through at your own pace and in your own time to familiarise yourself with library resources and services.
