We're here to help
Many people think that the library service does little more than lend books or provide a place to read journals. OHFT librarians however can do far more than this, actively supporting research by offering training in literature searching, critical appraisal and referencing and performing literature searches for busy clinicians and managers.
On-site services include computing facilities, areas for quiet study, group study rooms and access to expert library staff to help with general and detailed enquiries, sourcing of journal articles and books.
