What did you do for Knowledge Awareness Week?

Last week saw St George’s Library celebrate Knowledge Awareness Week with a range of promotional activities aimed at NHS staff.

On Monday, Library staff were on hand in the AMW to answer questions, with leaflets and free items available to those staff who stopped by. For the remainder of the week, a different resource was highlighted each day via an information stand and corresponding training session.

All helped to raise awareness of the Library, with an increase in both new members and people wishing to book a place on one of the Library’s information skills training sessions.

If you missed Knowledge Awareness Week and want to find out more about what the Library has to offer, take a look at the Library website or visit the Library 1st Floor, Hunter Wing.
