If you’re a new student then you might find it useful to know that the Medical Library has an enquiry desk staffed from Monday to Friday (9am-4.30pm) where there is always a member of staff on hand to help you with any queries you may have.
The enquiry desk can be found near the Medical Library’s entrance at a right angle to the main issue desk. Whoever is on duty will be happy to help you with any questions you have about using the various medical databases, RefWorks or Write ‘n’ Cite. We can demonstrate and take you through the basics of accessing Medline, how to combine search terms, use MeSH, export references directly to RefWorks and we’ll try and aid you with any other queries you may have about MS Word, formatting, referencing or anything else you might be struggling with.
No appointment is necessary so feel free to drop by, sit down and ask a question, no matter how basic or advanced you may think it is. If we can’t give you an answer we will at least do our best to point you in the direction of someone who can help.
For I.T. issues, there is also an I.T. service desk located very near the library in the corridor by the main building exit to the right as you leave the library.
We hope to see you soon!
