LIBRARY and INFORMATION WEEK
25th—31st MAY 2020

AT THE HEART OF THE RESPONSE: HEALTH LIBRARIANS SUPPORT BETTER DECISION-MAKING AROUND COVID-19
A key contribution to the discovery and application of information comes from it being presented in ways that work for those who need to use it.
Health librarians are playing a key role in curating information on emerging issues for both government and medical decision-makers.

Many of you will feel like us, overwhelmed with information coming from a wide variety of sources. HNE Health Libraries can assist you with COVID-19 information overload
We have produced a curated page to navigate to reputable information.
There are links to Government resources, decision support tools, evidence synthesis and summaries.

Stahl online (Comprehensive neuropsychopharmacology information)
This resource is comprehensive and regularly updated, providing full access to the entire current Cambridge portfolio of neuropsychopharmacology books by Stephen Stahl.
A one-stop shop, covering everything a doctor, teacher or trainee will ever need to know about neuropsychopharmacology.

 

HAVE YOU TRIED THE NEW‐LOOK CIAP WEBSITE?

The new-look site includes an updated visual identity and new features with the aim of making it easier for health professionals to access the clinical information they need, where and when they need it.

Two short video guides have been developed to introduce users to the new site and can be found by selecting ‘Training’ and then User Guides & Videos from the top menu on the new CIAP website. Or register for full day workshops to get the most out of CIAP.


NEWSPAPERS ARE BACK AT THE MATER LIBRARY!
With more and more content from news services disappearing behind paywalls, the Library has decided to subscribe to print copies of both the Newcastle and Sydney Morning Herald.
We hope that you might enjoy visiting us and perusing the papers when you get a chance.
Feel free to bring your morning, afternoon tea or lunch with you.

You can also read the latest news at the JHH branch.
