How can I help you?

If you have any question at all, feel free to ask. For example;

  • Library introduction for new employees
  • Search support for researchers (especially Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses).
  • Information Literacy Instruction (e.g. PsycINFO, ERIC, Medline/Pubmed, Sociological Abstracts, Web of Science).
  • Order new book titles



As a librarian I contributed to the following publications (see acknowledgements)

  • Berkhof M., Rijssen J van, Schellart A. J. M., Anema J. R. & Beek A. J. van der (2011) Effective training strategies for teaching communication skills to physicians: An overview of systematic reviews. Patient Education and Counseling, 84 (2), 152-162. doi:10.1016/j.pec.2010.06.010
  • Feltz-Cornelis C. M. van der, Nuyen J., Stoop C., Chan J., Jacobson A. M., Katon W., Snoek F. & Sartorius, N (2010) Effect of interventions for major depressive disorder and significant depressive symptoms in patients with diabetes mellitus: a systematic review and meta-analysis. General Hospital Psychiatry, 32 (4), 380-395 doi:10.1016/j.genhosppsych.2010.03.011
    NB. See appendix for the search strategy I developed together with Corinne Stoop
