Pocket-Sized Training

We run a programme of short (20-30 minute) lunchtime sessions to introduce you to a range of resources and web technologies. These sessions are very informal, so no need to book, and feel free to bring your lunch with you!

Sessions currently include:

  • A Short Introduction to Medical Terminology
  • Using Library OmniSearch to locate evidence quickly
  • NHS e-books – how to search and download
  • Getting started with Twitter
