Health Libraries Group Wales event- Tuesday 26 March 2013

Great news! The recently reformed Health Libraries Group in Wales have announced the programme for their Spring Study Day  to be held on Tuesday 26th March 2013 at the Royal College of Nursing in Cardiff.

The day will provide a fascinating insight into:
  • using smartphones to provide access to key medical texts
  • the open-access debate, and how Cardiff University are responding
  • a video conferenced session with colleagues from the University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research
  • the virtual enquiry service provided for RCN members in Wales
This event will also provide lots of useful networking opportunities and time to find out more about HLGW. Please support this event! Further details are given below.
