Evidence-based Support during COVID-19

The Library and Knowledge Team is currently available in each library at least once a week and working remotely. We are still available to facilitate all knowledge requirements, including literature search (or any information) requests, new registrations and training.

The physical libraries are still open and we are happy for you to borrow  and request books, please complete the paper Self-issue forms in the library and these will be processed by the library staff when they are next on site.

Equally, we are on hand to continue supporting access to evidence-based resources and maintaining access through OpenAthens, as well fulfilling the majority of journal article requests electronically.

Please email stmichaels.library@covwarkpt.nhs.uk for assistance.

Why work with Librarians and Knowledge Specialists?

The benefits of working with Librarians and Knowledge Specialists to drive change using evidence and knowledge.

Every day across the healthcare sector in England more than a million decisions are made that have a profound and lasting impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality of healthcare and the cost of services. Librarians and Knowledge Specialists use their expertise to work with healthcare teams to ensure that knowledge and evidence are used effectively to inform these decisions, helping teams to build upon best practice and share know-how, bringing the power for change.
