Ideal if you are conducting research, developing guidelines, writing for publication or looking for the latest evidence to support patient care, the library’s specialist search team carry out expert searches free of charge on topics of your choice.  With access to Medline, Embase, PsycINFO, HMIC and Cochrane, all areas of clinical medicine, health and social care are covered.

To request a search simply email us at info.medline@bma.org.uk

 

We also offer free one-to-one sessions, held at BMA House, for those who wish to receive search skills training or who require an assisted search session where a search specialist can assist you directly with developing your own search strategy on a specific topic.

For further information on free one-to-one sessions please contact Helen Elwell, Clinical Librarian, by phone on 020 7383 6582 or email helwell@bma.org.uk

We would like to apologise to anyone who received an overdue email notice from us this morning for items that you have already returned to us.

Due to a technical glitch, following an upgrade of our Library Management System earlier this week, several hundred historic overdue email notices were re-sent out this morning, rather than just the current ones for today.

All of the erroneous email notices are dated “06/10/2016” can be disregarded.

Thank you for your understanding,

BMA Library Staff.

 

 

 

We will be carrying out essential maintenance work on our online catalogue (www.bma.org.uk/catalogue) on Monday, 20 February 2017 – from 7.30am to 10.30am.
