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.

Let us help you find, use or create information during one of our scheduled training sessions. All dates for the year ahead are available on our online training calendar, and bookings can be made, via KnowledgeShare (UHL or LPT Athens password required) or on HELM (UHL staff). For more information, please contact one of the libraries.

If you can't make one of the scheduled sessions, contact one of the libraries and we will arrange a time with you individually or with a group of your colleagues.

Health Education England have produced some e-learning on literature searching. You can access this collection of modules here. 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 databases. These videos are produced by NICE, not by us, so we are not responsible for the content. They are available on YouTube here.

There are also some videos on the use of NICE Evidence Search, which is a single search which will find "selected and authoritative health and social care evidence-based information". The videos are hosted on YouTube and can be found here.
