As a Public Health Librarian based within the North-West, I am very lucky to have a strong network around me that provides CPD, shares best practice and are genuine, nice folk! Not everyone I am going to start sharing and signposting to resources that I am aware of, and hopefully they will be of interest to potential and other current health library folk (and sectors beyond) . If you are aware of anything that could be useful – please share!
- Quality Handbook – An useful resource that provides an introduction to/refresher on internal and external quality drivers for NHS Libraries.
- MAP Alignment Toolkit – very useful resource that supports helping libraries with alignment Useful for business planning etc.
- SHALL – Strategic Health Authority Library Leads website. Lots of handy links/guides etc. Check out the ‘For Library Staff’ tab.
