How Do I… Request a Literature Search?

Save time: ask your librarian to carry out a literature search for you!

We’d be pleased to find up to date and relevant information on your topic. Fill in the literature search request form below, or pop in to your library. Tell us as much as you can about your search request, and we’ll ask when you require the information for, so that we can negotiate a deadline to fit in with your needs and our workloads. Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for your search, unless it is for urgent patient care.

If you’d like to learn more about literature searching your library team offer training, or you can self-study using our online resources.

Please note that although we are unable to carry out literature searches for assessed pieces of coursework, we can offer advice and training in literature searching techniques to students.
