This is the final posting on the blog, as I am off to pastures new. The blog itself will remain as an archive. I hope you'll find useful snippets in it.
If you work in the NHS then please hot foot it down to your nearest NHS library and make use of it. You may feel that books on shelves are old hat, or that you have better studying facilities at home, or that your own laptop is preferable to library PCs. That's fine - library's are a broad church and can accommodate a variety of wants and needs. If there is only one thing you use in the library it has to be the staff. Library staff are what makes a library. Without them there would be no carefully selected and regularly updated books on shelves. There would be no one to take old books off the shelves and dispose of them. There would be no access to electronic journals because no one would set up all the behind the scenes admin for them. There would be no photocopier filled with paper, no posters on the walls. Most of all, there would be no one to guide, advise and lead you through the information maze.
If you do use your local library then three cheers for you. Please cherish it, tell your colleagues about it, support it.
Thanks for reading. Goodbye!
