Yesterday the MY Question, MY Research event took place at Trust HQ. The event was organised by Mid Yorks Research and Development (https://twitter.com/MYorksResearch) and was a fantastic opportunity for attendees to learn about some of the many research projects completed by members of staff within the Trust and other projects currently underway.
The staff library was in attendance at the event providing information to attendees on the many library resources which are available to aid research.
From electronic resources including a range of apps for smartphones and tablets (NICE Guidance – https://www.nice.org.uk/about/what-we-do/nice-apps-for-smartphones-and-tablets & BMJ Best Practice http://bestpractice.bmj.com/best-practice/marketing/bp-app.html) and access to many healthcare journals via NHS Open Athens (https://openathens.nice.org.uk/). Other accessible electronic resources include Healthcare Databases Advanced Search (HDAS – https://hdas.nice.org.uk/) & NICE (https://www.nice.org.uk/)
We also have a whole host of research textbooks which are available for loan to help support you in your research (you can search our full library catalogue online – http://midyorks.nhslibraries.com).
The library is also able to offer training to support researchers on critical appraisal, training on literature searching and will perform literature searches for busy staff. For further information on these services please contact the library.
