Training For BHS Staff

There is a wealth of health-related information available in the electronic resources accessible via the BHS Library webpage and through using library apps on your mobile devices.

The Library's sessions are designed to introduce you to these resources and to show how to increase your success rate in retrieving the publications relevant to your search, to your profession and to your area of interest. It also ensures you keep abreast with the latest developments in your field.

If you would like to schedule a group training session for your department on a particular topic this can be arranged at a time that suits you best.

If you would prefer to have an individual session at a different time please contact Catriona  Clayworth in the BHS Library to arrange it.

Or you can book now for one of the sessions listed below.
