Terms of Reference
The purpose of the group is to share ideas and best practice to enable the delivery of clinical librarianship services, literature searching services and the provision of LKS skills training across the North West.
Membership of the group and email list is open to all clinical librarians, library staff who carry out searches as part of their role, and LKS skills trainers employed in the North West. If you are interested in joining the group please contact the Chair.
The Chair of the group will be selected, by the group members, for a maximum 12 month term of office. If a co-chairing arrangement is agreed upon each chair will serve for a maximum of 2 years. Chairs are responsible for working together to organise dates for meetings, drawing up the agenda, and contacting potential speakers. The work of Chairs is facilitated and supported by HEE Staff and LIHNN Library staff locally.
Meetings are held quarterly online via Microsoft Teams and include an element of CPD activity – either a discussion about a literature search or the critical appraisal of a library research article.
The group welcomes guest attendance from interested parties including students, candidates working towards Cilip qualifications and library knowledge staff working in other sectors. If you would like to attend a meeting please contact the Chair.
Chair: Will be undertaken on a rotational basis at the moment
Secretary: Will be undertaken on a rotational basis.
