Library Assistant Study Day - Searching Workshop

Description:

This interactive workshop on searching will be led by Michelle Maden from the University of Liverpool and will look at:

  • Types of health information
  • Selecting resources for health information
  • Transforming a search request into a search strategy
  • Using NICE Evidence for different types of health information
  • Finding full-text journals and journal articles

The workshop is a basic introduction to searching for Library Assistants and requires no pre-requisite knowledge of searching for health information. We will use real-life searching examples to highlight the process involved in developing and undertaking basic searches.

Workshop requirements: You will need to bring your NHS Athens login. To register or receive a reminder of your login details go to: https://openathens.nice.org.uk/Auth/Login
