The Library currently offers 9 modules of information skills training sessions.
We recommend that complete beginners start with Module 1 - How to find information and work their way through to Module 9 – Critical appraisal of qualitative studies.
If you have some experience of searching already then just select the module or modules that are suitable for you. If you are not sure, a member of library staff will be able to advise you.
These sessions can also contribute towards the following KSF dimensions and the RCN competencies for Finding, using and managing information:
KSF: HWB1, HWB2, HWB3, HWB4, HWB5, HWB6, HWB7, IK2, IK3 & G2
RCN: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7
You may also wish to look at our Training resources (useful internet resources) page to view the relevant websites used in the training sessions.
If these dates and times are not suitable speak to a member of library staff and we may be able to arrange something for you. In addition the Library now has a Clinical Librarian who can arrange to hold a group session for your department. If this is something you would be interested in then please don't hesitate to contact us.
There are also e-learning literature searching modules available which are free to access at
