Services for Learners
I can advise on finding appropriate information for assignments, and on citing references. I can help with EndNote, RefWorks, critical appraisal of the literature, improving your web searching techniques, accessing online journals and using bibliographic databases like Medline. I teach on modules in medicine, biological sciences, operating department practice and social work, and on MSc courses in biomedicine and health sciences. I am happy to meet with individual students: please email me or use "Book a Librarian" to book an appointment.
Services for Academic Staff
I can provide help and advice on literature searching, accessing library resources (journals and databases), keeping up to date with your research interests, improving your searching techniques, and using EndNote or RefWorks. I can provide training sessions on any of the above to you, or your students. I liaise with, and purchases library resources for, the departments and courses listed under "Departments/Schools" above.
Keith is currently working towards Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. He has developed materials for teaching critical appraisal. He firmly believes in the mutual benefit of links with other parts of the world, and has been able to visit Gondar, Ethiopia, three times as part of the University's link with the University there. The first of these visits was to visit the Library, and the other two were to teach, with colleagues from Ethiopia and the UK, a module on evidence based practice, as part of the University of Gondar's MSc programme. Keith edits the Health Libraries Group Newsletter's "Internet Sites of Interest" column, is a reviewer for the BMA's annual Patient Information Award and an occasional peer reviewer for Health Information and Libraries Journal.
