Libraries supporting learning

Did you know that Shrewsbury and Telford Health Libraries offer a range of training to help you succeed?

As well as one-to-one support and training on how to find information in library resources, we also offer a range of courses, such as our pocket-sized training series of half-hour lunchtime sessions including:

  • Introduction to medical terminology
  • Getting started with Twitter
  • Finding information with OmniSearch
  • Using NHS e-books

There is no need to book for the pocket-sized training courses, just turn up and feel free to bring your lunch.

If you’re a nurse or midwife looking to revalidate, we also offer a Revalidation Reflective Reading workshop, allowing you to gain up to 3 hours of CPD time through pre-workshop reading of an article, and then small group discussion and reflection.

Dates for all our courses are on our library calendar. If you’d like to arrange some one-to-one training, please feel free to contact our helpful library staff in either of our libraries.
