Biomedical and Health Information Summer School 2016 – Bookings now open

By Angela Young, on 23 May 2016

Bookings are now being taken for the Biomedical and Health Information Summer School 2016, a series of training and professional development sessions which aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of UCL Library Services staff to better enable them to answer enquiries and support the needs of UCL and NHS library users. Although some sessions have a biomedical or health emphasis, some are generic in their nature and relevant to library staff from any discipline.

It’s an extensive programme this year, with a variety of sessions pitched at a range of levels, running throughout June and July:

  • Open access: supporting researchers
  • Exploring ebooks
  • Advanced and systematic literature searching and support for systematic reviews
  • Introducing the new HDAS: NHS databases
  • Sources of drug information
  • Bibliometrics: counting citations and why citations count
  • Critical appraisal skills: getting to grips and moving forward
  • Managing references on the go

This year’s programme also includes an online-online component, dare you take the 30 Day Research Support Challenge?

Full details of the programme, including the 30 Day Research Support Challenge, are available on LibNet. Sessions are open to all UCL Library Services staff, however priority will be given to those based on biomedical sites. Please ensure you have the permission of your line manager to attend.

Please email info.skills@ucl.ac.uk to book a place or for further information. Please include your name, site/team, telephone number, email address, and the session(s) you wish to attend.
