Next-Day Training in Literature Resources

A member of the Library team will be available in the Study Booth every weekday from 11am until 12 noon for training on:

  • Literature Searching.
  • Using Explore.
  • Using Literature Databases.
  • Using EndNote.

Please book in advance with at least 24 hours' notice.

View the directory of Pharmacy Databases for the resources for which we offer training.

Depending on room availability and with more advance notice, we can arrange sessions at alternative times between 9am and 7pm on term-time weekdays and between 9am and 5pm in vacation periods.

These sessions complement the Library-led workshops embedded in the curriculum.  Prior attendance at a workshop is neither a pre-requisite nor a barrier to requesting a session, so do please sign up.

For academic staff: advanced training sessions or workshops can be arranged for you or your students.
