Literature Search

What is a Literature Search Request?

Need to find evidence-based information to support patient care, research, guideline and care pathway development, audit or policy documentation?  Want to find up-to-date material on a topic of interest? 

Our professional librarians can carry out searches on your behalf to identify journal articles, guidelines, systematic reviews and other evidence-based information to help meet your requirements. This service might be useful if you are searching a complex topic, struggling to find material (or narrow down the amount you find) or if you simply want to make sure you are getting the best results.
The results of a search will be a list of bibliographic references which can posted or emailed to you, or even collected from the library. 

To request a Literature Search please complete the Literature Search request form.

Please submit as much information as possible about your search topic so there is no delay in processing your request.

Please note that if you do not receive the message

"Thank you, your request has been successfully sent." You need to check that you have completed all the relevant fields. Your request will not be received by the Library service until you see the "Thank you, your request has been successfully sent." message

If you encounter any difficulties in completing this form, please do not hesitate to contact us.
