Outreach – The Library comes to you

Covid-19: Library Services Status Update - updated 16th June 2020

Outreach services have been temporarily put on hold while the library is closed, however please do not hesitate to get in touch to enquire for alternative means of support. We are currently hosting training sessions via the Trust-supported communications platform, Webex. Please let us know via email if you would like to be booked for a session, and we will send you an invite.


Our Outreach Librarians are available to help across all divisions within the Trust. We can conduct literature searches on your behalf for clinical need, training, and work-related research. We offer library provision at the point of need, making the research process as simple as possible. Request a search and we'll either do it on the spot or get back to you with a concise report ASAP - just email

We can support you to update your searching skills with sessions face-to-face in the library orin your place of work. The service can also offer tailored training for small teams or specialist groups on searching for information and critical appraisal. See our training page for more details.

We can also set up personalised Evidence Update alerts for you, as well as providing a monthly bulletin. If you need to keep up to date in a particular subject area we can search for the latest evidence, undertake critical appraisal, and email you the latest, most relevant evidence. See our Current Awareness page for more details.

Please email or select your departmental Outreach Librarian below if you'd like to know more about any of our Outreach services.
