Trainers Toolkit

The Trainer's Toolkit provides a number of resources that can be used by librarians and information skills trainers to help them plan, perform and evaluate training sessions. Members of CLIST have produced a range of training guides which cover the key electronic databases and resources used in healthcare libraries.  We have also included links to publisher-produced guides where appropriate.

You may download any of these for free from this site and use them in their present form or adapt them for use in your own training and teaching sessions. All of the documents are in pdf to allow for easy download and viewing but if you would like to obtain an original we would advise you to contact the author(s) or the CLIST secretary.  We would also request that you acknowledge CLIST or the individual author(s) when using these materials.

See also our resources for critical appraisal, e-learning, information literacy and journal clubs.
