  • Providing a workable range of the most relevant and best literature from world sources;
  • Using national and international library lending and copying services to provide literature which cannot be obtained from local sources;
  • Delivering sessions on a variety of topics, from literature searching and critical appraisal through to managing research data and Open Access.
