Help to get started

Chatting with a liaison librarian before you start out on your research journey can save you lots of time. Your liaison librarian may be able to recommend the best databases to use, and sources of information which you need to cover to make sure that your literature review is comprehensive. You can make an appointment to drop in and see us, talk by phone or email, or we can use Zoom software to demonstrate search techniques for catalogues and databases. We also offer to review your search strategies and make suggestions for improvement. It's your choice. Go to the Need help? page in this guide to make an appointment with a Health Liaison Librarian.
