The libraries offer computing facilities which can be used by Trust staff to undertake e-learning modules for statutory and mandatory training. At present there is no booking system for pcs in the libraries. We also provide headphones for use in the libraries (available from the library office at each site).

Literature Searching STEPS modules: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/literature-searching/ These e learning modules are designed to help the healthcare workforce (clinical and non-clinical) build confidence to search published literature for articles and evidence relevant to their work, study and research. The modules are short (each taking no more than 20 minutes to complete) and may be ‘dipped into’ for reference, or completed to obtain a certificate. There are modules suitable for novice searchers and those wishing to refresh their knowledge:
- Module 1 Introduction to searching
- Module 2 Where do I start searching?
- Module 3 How do I start to develop a search strategy?
- Module 4 Too many results? How to narrow your search
- Module 5 Too few results? How to broaden your search
- Module 6 Searching with subject headings
See also the following animations to help you apply OR/AND in your searches.
Finding and Appraising the Evidence – These modules take you through the process of how to find the evidence and then how to assess the validity and reliability of the published research in order to provide effective and efficient healthcare.
