Help Guides & Training

As well as the services offered within our libraries and by our staff, there are a large number of online resources to help you find information, learn new skills, and keep up to date. Some of our favourites as well as our own guides and tutorials are listed here. We’ve also included information about other relevant local training providers.

Help guides

We produce a number of help guides which give full details on a wide range of topics such as pre-clinical medicine, biomedical sciences, systematic reviews, medical law and ethics, and the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA).

Online and external training

We’ve pulled together a collection of online tutorials and other training tools, covering a large number of specific resources and information skills topics. We also have links to exam resources.

You can also access training in Oxford through a number of other providers in the University and elsewhere.

Getting Started leaflets

Our Getting Started leaflets are extremely popular. Subjects covered include citing references, e-Journals, and databases such as TRIP (Turning Research Into Practice) database, and the Cochrane library.
