Pocket-sized Training on Library OmniSearch

Need to locate evidence quickly? Library OmniSearch can help!

Library OmniSearch is our one-stop shop for searching library resources, covering books, e-books, articles, evidence resources, the BNF and journals. We’re organising some lunchtime training to demonstrate what OmniSearch can do and how to make the most of it.

OmniSearch can be found on front page of our website. You don’t need to be on an NHS PC to use the resources; with an NHS OpenAthens account from us, you can access the resources covered by OmniSearch from any computer (note that DynaMed Plus is only available to SaTH staff).

Students with Staffordshire and Keele Universities can also use OmniSearch to search the resources offered by their own universities – simply select your university from the dropdown boxes on the appropriate tabs.

We’re running some training initially at Shrewsbury, but if there is demand we’ll put some on at Telford. The dates for September are:

Wednesday 13th September 1-1.30pm in IT Training Room 2, Learning Centre, RSH
Monday 25th September 1-1.30pm in IT Training Room 2, Learning Centre, RSH

Look out for more dates, and other Pocket-sized Training courses, including our medical terminology courses.

Our Pocket-sized Training courses are very informal, and just last half an hour. Feel free to bring your lunch!

  • Tattoo ink particles can spread into lymph nodes
    "Tattoos could give you cancer, new research suggests," is the entirely unsupported claim from the Mail Online.

Researchers used samples of skin and adjacent lymph nodes […]
  • No change to alcohol guidelines for pregnancy
    "There is little evidence having the occasional drink while pregnant harms a baby," reports the Mail Online.

To put this in context, […]
