Contact your librarian


Contact me!

All students on CPP courses at Medway are very welcome to come and see me in the Library or send me an e-mail via the Contact Your Librarian form (select Health!). If you are coming in to see me, it's often a good idea to contact me first (to check whether I'm actually going to be in the building).

As your subject librarian, you can come to me for help on information and library-related matters. Whether you are having trouble using the catalogue, need some advice on internet searching, want to know more about databases or are stuck with referencing, I am the person to ask! I also run training sessions when asked by academics from the courses I support, and am often involved with modules on research skills or evidence-based practice.

You can also telephone me on 01634 883446 - but I do not have voicemail, I'm afraid, so you have to hope you catch me at my desk!

If you need to contact the Library in general the main contact details are available from the Drill Hall web pages.

Some recent Tweets from my Twitter feed can be seen on the right. This can include general updates about the Drill Hall Library as well as subject-specific information such as the newest books in stock, new resources you might find useful and details of workshops and drop-in sessions I run. If you're on Twitter, you can follow me on @dhldavidb.

The Drill Hall Library also has a Twitter account - @drillhalllib, as well as a Facebook page.
