National Library for Health Gastroenterology & Liver Diseases Specialist Library
The National Library for Health Gastroenterology & Liver Diseases Specialist Library (GLDSL) will be launched at the British Society of Gastroenterology annual conference Tuesday, 21st March 2006. The GLDSL will be available via http://www.library.nhs.uk/gastroliver/ after this date.
The Specialist Libraries are an integral part of the National Library for Health (NLH), a library and information service for the NHS, aiming to deliver a range of services on a 24x7 basis to support patient care, staff development and research. For further information visit http://www.library.nhs.uk/about/.The NLH Gastroenterology & Liver Diseases Specialist Library (GLDSL) draws together resources and information that is relevant, best evidence and current within these specialties. Although targeted at health professionals it also serves to inform patients and their carers.
The GLDSL project team is based at the Royal Free Hospital. It is led by Dr Martyn Caplin and supported by information specialists from the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library, UCL Library Services. The project team works closely with an editorial board, topic leads and key stakeholders, including the BSG.
The GLDSL relies on feedback from its users to help it develop. If you would like to contribute to the GLDSL or would like further information please email email@example.com.
Many of you will have looked at the Map of Medicine website in the last 18 months and left it wanting more information. I am pleased to tell you that a new and much improved site is now available. This site offers: new samples in the latest version of the product; provenance information (editorial methodology and sources; and list of pathway content. Although the sample doesn't show integrated use of the NLH, because this website is for use internationally, it does offer links to the NLH throughout. Go to www.medictomedic.com
NLH Single Search Environment temporarily unavailable 25th to 28th November The NLH Single Search Environment (SSE) will be down for essential upgrades over these four days. During this period NLH users will be redirected to a temporary page which will allow them to access all other NLH resources and to the NeLH search as an alternative. SSE will be available again on 29th November. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this will cause.
Please direct any queries via the NLH Feedback button
Dear colleagues Apologies for any cross-posting. United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust, Severn & Wessex Deanery, and Avon Gloucestershire Wiltshire Strategic Health Authority are working together on a six month project to develop e-learning materials for newly qualified doctors. Our project specifically addresses the evidence-based practice and clinical guidelines elements of their 'Foundation Curriculum'. The project is under the umbrella of the NHS 'Do Once And Share' programme - and so naturally we want to provide an opportunity for you to give us feedback - by registering with our 'Extended Reference Group'. We have established the ERG to inform, support, nudge, cajole, praise and (gently) criticise the project team - and crucially - to comment on pilot materials as they are developed. Your participation is entirely electronic, and is open to anyone interested. To register with the ERG, please visit the following URL on our website; http://www.ubht.nhs.uk/evidence-in-practice/erg.htm Many thanks for reading this far...and we hope to hear from you.
The Health Libraries Week toolkit is now available on www.nelh.nhs.uk/dlnet. This includes a list of the materials you can order but PLEASE NOTE materials aren't ready just yet so please don't try ordering yet. We've been assured most materials will be ready for 31st October, and the internal mail envelopes and folders will be ready on 7th November. We appreciate this doesn't give you a great deal of time to get hold of materials - unavoidable delays were caused by awaiting new visual identity guidelines.
You'll also see a link to a syndicated article - this is included in the NHS Connecting for Health toolkit for communicators. You may wish to use the article and add in quotes from your local champions.
We'll be following Health Libraries Week with a short evaluation this year - we'll be in touch to ask you how it went, what worked well, what didn't ...
Best of luck with your Health Libraries Week activities and events - would be good if you could share here some of the things you have planned!
Joint IFM Healthcare and Libraries for Nursing Study Day

Dear all We're now pleased to be able to offer you the preview version of the NLH RSS Directory, available from the Preview link on the right hand side of the NLH homepage - www.library.nhs.uk. The directory is designed to be both browsable by categories, and searchable. For those who are new to RSS, there are help files and tutorials to get you started, available from the right hand column of the directory itself. The directory is still being populated with feeds - if you would like to submit a feed for inclusion, you can use the link on the right hand side of the page. We'd be grateful for your feedback and comments on the directory before we go for a full launch later in the year - these can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
To summarise, the article talks about Kirkpatrick's 4 levels of evaluation - level 1 being the type of "happy sheet" that's often given out at the end of a session to see how satisfied people are with the session. It goes on to say:
"Whenever I am involved in an evaluation project, I advocate getting rid of the smile sheet completely, and replacing that tortured questionnaire with one closed question, plus an open follow-up to encourage respondents to reveal what really matters to them: “Would you recommend this course to a friend or colleague? Why or why not?” The response tells you unambiguously about the level of satisfaction of the learner, and any clarification offered tells you about the issues that really matter to that learner. That’s more than is called for at Level 1."
I think the article has a point - and it makes collating your evaluations a lot easier too! Any thoughts, ideas, or examples of other useful questions that could be used to get an idea of how your sessions are being received?
For Health Libraries Week this year, we’re planning a national media campaign to complement the local awareness-raising campaigns that you undertake within your organisations.
We’re able to make use of the NHS Connecting for Health Media Relations team, who have suggested that the best way to sell a story to the media is to use case studies that demonstrate how library services (both electronic and physical) are used by frontline staff, and are ultimately benefiting patients.
We will use case studies in our communications materials including newsletters, leaflets, web copy, articles and some media relations activity. We will also build a database of case studies that you will be able to draw on for use in your own organisation’s publications, newsletter, etc.
The template has been designed to help us to gather the key information we need from you and your library users. However, we may contact the individuals concerned to gather further information, hence the need to ask for contact details.
If you have local champions, library users, trainees or other examples of people who would be willing to share their experiences of how they use library services and how they have helped benefit patients, please ask them to fill in the template, and either email back to email@example.com or post to Fran Wilkie, NLH, Aqueous 2, Rocky Lane, Aston Cross, Birmingham, B6 5RQ.
In order to get articles into journals for November, we need to have responses back by 31st August, please (although responses returned after that time can be added to the database).
CASPuk Training Week 2005 In association with the CASP International Network and the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine
CASPuk Training Week 2005 is taking place from 5th - 9th September 2005. This popular week supports health and social care professionals from across the UK and around the world who wish to disseminate evidence-based practice and decision-making within their organisation or locality. The CASP model promotes a user-friendly, sustainable and cost-effective teaching approach, which has already been implemented in several countries.
This year, as in previous years, the CASPuk team will be joined by international trainers from the CASP International Network, who will facilitate the week's training and share their experience of evidence-based practice
New for 2005 This year, CASPuk Training Week will be run in parallel with the 11th Oxford Workshop on Teaching Evidence-Based Practice. The format of the week will be unchanged, but participants will have the added benefit of attending plenaries by some of the leading exponents of Evidence-Based Practice
Comments from previous participants "I now feel more confident and feel I have the skills to facilitate CASP more comprehensively and creatively in my organisation" "I'm pleased with wonderful teachers and so many useful materials" "[The] course is excellent - met all my needs. The trainers were very helpful" "I am now going to develop on-line and live journal club in my organisation. Also look at how CASP can facilitate clinical effectiveness and other groups in Trust" "I understand a lot more than I did previously and I now feel confident that I could successfully run a critical appraisal workshop"
The other day at Wrightington I offered my utopian vision of CAS services at a meeting of the LIHNN eResources network, subject specific material from selected journals or direct to full text. Pubmed offers us the ability to do this now. I have three test feeds out with a critical friend right now so I'll let you know how it goes.
Key issues so far:
Time to identify full text in MyNCBI, not a task to be taken lightly does take a while and is the capital city of Dullsville. Just think of the end result.
Search strategies have to take into account you are really after pre-medline records and therefore title words are the key.
First subscription to the feed will be scary, lots dragged back but once the user has handled that first batch I anticipate new stuff will be manageable. Feeds if you want to see how it works or add constructive criticism are:
Dear all, Further to the email that Alison sent on the 7th June, here are more details about the Assertive Communication Workshops she mentioned, which are designed to help you think about how to promote your services effectively and get your messages across to the right people. Places are limited to 30 for each workshop, and the London one on 6th September in particular is booking up quickly. The workshops will be very participative, and will give you the opportunity to look at your own workplace situations.
Times: Each event will start at 10am, and will finish by 4pm - lunch will be provided.
Dates and venues: Wednesday 6th July - Leeds - Leeds Park Plaza hotel Tuesday 26th July - London - Thistle Euston hotel Thursday 28th July - Nottingham - Holiday Inn Nottingham Tuesday 6th September - London - Radisson Grafton Thursday 8th September - Wolverhampton - Novotel Wolverhampton Monday 12th September - Manchester - Palace hotel, Manchester Friday 16th September - Bristol - Novotel Bristol Tuesday 27th September - Newcastle - Thistle Newcastle
Hi all Please note that there is now a link to PRODIGY from the National Library for Health homepage - www.library.nhs.uk - under the Guidance section. PRODIGY guidance is included in the NLH search engine.
Following feedback from librarians, it has been decided to re-run Health Libraries Week this Autumn, from 14-18 November. Like last year, the campaign will be a mix of locally and nationally organised events and activities. Within NLH, we're starting to produce a range of general purpose and more specific promotional materials (based on ideas sent in to us). Feedback from earlier campaigns suggest that the most difficult aspect of promotion is being able to talk to the most influential people, so we are running a series of "Assertive Communication" workshops around the country during July and September. The programme is yet to be finalised but it is likely each workshop will run from around 10am to 4pm. - booking form now available at http://www.insitefulsurveys.com/Survey.asp?SI=287933310475. Over the coming weeks, a web page for Health Libraries Week will be published - an announcement will be made here when it's available.
Hello all We've had several requests recently for NLH promotional materials, so I thought I should let you know the situation. Stock levels are very low at the moment, for a number of reasons, not least of which is that our budget was frozen while we transferred from the NHSIA to NHS Connecting for Health. We're now at the stage of being able to design, commission and re-order materials, although the new processes for the new organisation mean that this may take a little longer. Our plan is to re-order some items quickly, but to concentrate on getting stocks of materials in place over the summer, in time for Health Libraries Week (14th-18th November - more info coming soon). We're using the information from the recent survey that many of you filled in to choose items for this year. I'll keep you updated on what will be available as I have more news.
