New Quality Quest Training Sessions and Information Clinic

New times and dates in May and June2007 are available for Quality Quest training sessions providing hands-on training in specific resources including:
  • Cochrane Library
  • PubMed
  • Library Induction
  • Finding e-Journals
  • Literature Searching for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals
  • Literature searching for Junior Doctors

However it may be that you need book an appointment at the Information Clinic.

Are you new to the NHS, and need some help navigating where to find the best evidence?

Are you experienced at searching for information, but are having trouble with a particular question?

Do you know the basics, but want to learn how to refine your search?

Information Clinic is a one-to-one session where you and a Librarian work together to find the answer to your question. These sessions are entirely tailored to your needs, and are arranged at a time and date to suit you - it may even be possible for the Librarian to come to you, rather than you coming to the library.

Contact Isla Kuhn, Reader Services Librarian, to discuss how we can help, and to arrange an Information Clinic appointment.Phone: (01223) 336750 or email library@medschl.cam.ac.uk
