Psychology for Healthcare Library: Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to this guide for finding information for HSC Psychology staff.  This guide is designed to help you find and use the library resources most useful for your work or research. As your specialist librarian, I am available to provide:

  • advice on searching for and locating library resources
  • training on using specific databases
  • assistance in building a literature search

Please use the tabs above to navigate this LibGuide.  Please get in touch if you have any questions, or if you would like to arrange a workshop for your team at a convenient location.

I am based in both Craigavon Hospital and in the Medical Library, but I am more than happy to visit any HSC location as required.

E-Book Survey

E-Book Survey to Psychology Staff.

We recently carried out a short survey with Psychology library members to help us better understand the awareness, use and attitudes towards e-books. On the whole staff were happy to use e-books although some did express a preference for the printed copy. "I like e-books because they are so much quicker and easier to access when you need to find something out, however if I wanted to read the whole book cover to cover I find the paper version much easier to read." However a significant number of respondents (31%) were unaware of the e-books that are available. We will increase our promotion of e-books to ensure staff are able to get the material they need in the most time efficient way.

Thank you to everyone who responded to the short e-book survey.

 

 

 

 

Journals

The Healthcare Library subscribes to 1000s of journals, most of which can be read on-line via its website.

There are several ways to search for journal articles:

  • Search by key word or article title in the main search box on the home page
  • Search within any journal for articles on a topic by selecting the E-journal A-Z  
  • Search for a specific journal article
