Launch of NeLH Specialist Library for Child Health

National electronic Library for Health Launches Child Health and Paediatrics Specialist Library

The NeLH Child Health and Paediatrics Specialist Library was launched today (26 January 2004) in Sheffield. Dr Mark Everard, Consultant Paediatrician at Sheffield Children's Hospital and the clinical lead for the library, said:

“I’m pleased to launch this innovative resource for all health professionals working in child health. The library provides access to a wide range of resources across child health, giving access to the best available evidence.”

The Child Health and Paediatrics Specialist Library has been developed working with many different groups in Child Health. This collaboration has allowed the Specialist Library to index over 1,000 resources at the time of launch.

To coincide with the launch of the Specialist Library a week of promotional activities are taking place throughout the country. An online tour of the Child Health and Paediatrics Specialist Library is also available, with an audio commentary: http://www.nelh.nhs.uk/tour/childhealth/childhealth1.asp?script=childhealth&slide=0

Fiona Smith, Paediatric Adviser at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) added:
“The library is an excellent resource for all nurses working with children and young people. The electronic mailing list is particularly valuable to alert busy professionals working with children.”

The Library welcomes all feedback to childhealth@shef.ac.uk and encourages you to sign up to their mailing list.
