NLH Specialist Libraries

Specialist Libraries are a key resource available from the National Library for Health. Designed to give health professionals a quick and easy way of accessing the best available evidence in their field. Resources are selected by a team of clinicians and information specialists to ensure their currency and relevancy. Each library can be searched or browsed using topic trees, and the results are grouped according to the type of information- so guidance documents are grouped together, as are evidence-based resources, patient information etc. Links to full text are made wherever possible.

Specialist Libraries also produce Annual Evidence Updates that highlight the best current evidence for important health-care topics. Watch out for regular posts on this blog highlighting the upcoming Evidence-updates or click here for a calendar.
