Literature Searching

Trying to find information for your work or study? Not sure if you are getting the results you need? 

Take a look at our E-resources pages to see what is available and download the HDAS user guides from the link on the right.

If you need further support, please contact us. We can arrange a training session at a time convenient to you, either on a one to one basis, in a group or visit you in your department. 

Alternatively, we can undertake a literature review or search on your behalf and send you the results. To make a request, please fully complete a Literature Search Request Form and then send it back to us.

Literature review - We would carry out a thorough search of the literature and then summarise our findings. Within the review we would critically evaluate the information, identifying themes and presenting our findings in a document. 

Once you receive the results back from us, it is important that you help us asess the quality and impact of the service we provide by completing one of our Library Impact Questionnaires



'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'

Patient, Lowson / Starling Wards, Richardson Hospital
