We are a small, friendly library team specialising in mental health and learning disabilities based at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
We also offer a wide range of resources supporting a wide range of clinical and non-clinical information needs, including nursing, occupational therapy, admin and managerial roles.
If we don’t have something you need, we will try our best to obtain it for you via our interlibrary service.
How we can support you
Although we have the usual library resources, we are not just books and online journals.
Our library staff can also help you with:
- Literature searches – examples include: for patient care, research queries, keeping up to date in your area, service development.
- Information skills/research skills training – help constructing a literature search, searching the databases, tips and tricks for searching google, finding good quality evidence, critical appraisal.
- Keeping you up to date: current evidence delivered straight to your inbox – this is through our table of contents, current awarenessand CPD portal services.
- Posting resources to you (to any LYPFT trust site) – we know it’s hard to find time to visit the library, but tell us what books/journal/resource you need and we will post it out to you free of charge.
