Each semester Helen Whittaker and Richard Persaud, the science librarians, work with academic staff and run training sessions as part of particular Life Science modules. These help you to use Library resources to find information, appropriate to that point in your course, and may include:
Drop-in sessions on a particular topic, eg using Web of Science or ScienceDirect, or general help sessions, may also be offered during the semester.

Web of Science hosts some of the most important Life Sciences databases - Web of Science (including the Science Citation Index), Medline and the BIOSIS Citation Index. For project or dissertation level it is the ideal place to begin looking for journal articles, reviews and other information. To find out more about Web of Science, contact Helen or Richard in person or at email@example.com
A Camtasia tutorial about citation searching on Web of Science is also available.
Engage in research: "The interactive resource for bioscience students."
Virtual Training Suite : "a set of free Internet tutorials to help you develop Internet research skills for your university course."
For details of all other library and information skills training courses, see our Training pages.
Students or staff can also make individual appointments to discuss any queries or training needs. Please contact Helen or Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and for further help or advice.
