This includes literature searching, assisting with the scoping of HTW appraisals, information skills training and maintenance of electronic access to information resources.

As well as an appropriate degree, you will have specialist knowledge of systematic literature searching methodologies (in particular, experience of designing and running complex search strategies in a variety of electronic bibliographic databases), knowledge of reference management software, and a keen interest in evidence-based medicine.
