How the health libraries support staff undertaking research at UHNM

The Health Library Service is here to support researchers working for our NHS partners. Research may include many different aspects of healthcare practice - clinical research, clinical audits, quality improvement, innovation, new developments, and individual projects. So, no matter the size of your project - big or small - we are here to support you. Learn about the different ways we can support staff undertaking research and access our research toolkit here:

Literature searching/rapid reviews

Literature searching and finding the evidence is a big part of what our professionally qualified health librarians do…

NHS staff undertaking research can request that a literature search is carried out on their behalf. These will normally be undertaken by a specialist librarian, with input from you. You will be provided with a report detailing the articles that match your search question which you can then access and read. Please note that this service is only to support your work and not courses of study. If you want to be kept up to date after the search is complete, ask for a literature search alert to be set up. Find out more about our literature search service here:
