UHL Libraries & information services provide training on how to find high quality information and how to search online resources more effectively. All sessions are free to our full and student members. We provide face-to-face training, guides and e-learning.

Health Education England have produced some e-learning on literature searching. You can access this growing collection of modules. Please be aware that these modules are not created by us and may differ a little from how we teach these skills in our training.

Some video guides have been produced on the use of the healthcare database system. These videos are produced by NICE, not by us, so we are not responsible for the content. They are available on YouTube via the link below.
