For help with literature searching book a tutorial with one of our academic librarians: Iain, Julie, Nicola or Gemma.

For help with referencing please see our How to use References guide or email for additional support.

For help with academic writing please book a tutorial with Sue or Yvonne - our Learning Advisors

We can offer support via email, or Microsoft Teams or face-to-face appointments on campus (please check the directions section to see if face-to-face is available for your chosen time). Please indicate on the form what type of appointment you would prefer. You will still need to book a time via the link below. 

Before booking a tutorial, please ensure you have looked at the online support materials available:

Structured searching for health students (using CINAHL and other databases) - This guide includes information on planning a structured search in CINAHL or MEDLINE, using Boolean operators, advanced search techniques and PICO. There is a workbook, written guides and videos.  Guidance on using EMBASE, SCOPUS, Maternity and Infant Care, PubMed and Cochrane Library is also available via the 'Further Support' tab.

Systematic Review Support - This guide is aimed at postgraduate researchers, who are carrying out a full systematic review. However, students on other levels of study, such as a taught postgraduate course who need to search systematically for a literature review, may find parts of the guide helpful too.

It is a very busy time of year and the appointments are getting booked up very quickly so may not always be available.

Keep an eye on the online booking page: you will see if there are any cancellations, and when more appointments are added. The appointments are only visible 2 weeks ahead, so each weekday more may get released (depending on availability).
