Today I made a new friend, possibly one of the best friends I will ever make. It’s the start of a beautiful relationship that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. My new friend’s name is Libby. Libby isn’t like other friends though, as Libby will literally never leave my side unless I decide to leave her behind, or I forget to charge her. Charge her I hear you say? That’s right, Libby isn’t a person, Libby is an app! A library app to be precise. Maybe I should start from the beginning….

Are you tackling a systematic review but not sure where to start? Struggling to define your review question or come up with a clear search strategy?
The Library now subscribes to Cochrane Interactive Learning . This resource contains 11 modules to help you improve your knowledge and skills in conducting systematic reviews. Whilst the Cochrane Review process is designed for healthcare interventions, any researcher who is interested in systematic reviews or systematic searching can benefit from this resource. The first three modules may be of particular interest.
Library accounts are created for all CCCU users in LibrarySearch, where you can log into your account and access e-resources. Occasionally technical difficulties may cause a delay in the creation of library accounts. If you should find you are one of the users affected, you can still access e-resources via LibrarySearch without actually needing to sign in to LibrarySearch. Please read on to find out how.
