Literature search service

NHS and Keele staff who need to carry out complex literature searches, lack confidence in their own searching skills, or are pressed for time can request that a literature search be carried out on their behalf. These will normally be carried out by a specialist librarian, with input from you. You will be provided with a report detailing the articles that match your search question. Please note that this service is only to support your work and not courses of study.

Request literature search for clinical questions, such as those involving patient care, clinical or nursing practice.

Request literature search for non-clinical questions, such as education or management-related topics.
