Our team of skilled Librarians have extensive experiences of delivering information skills training to a range of user groups. We offer a range of training options for serving UK police officers and staff, training course delegates and College of Policing staff. 

Library inductionslibrary induction

Our inductions include a tour of the library and a demonstration on how to use Police Library Search (PLS) and classic catalogue to view, request and retrieve resources. We offer individual and group sessions which are tailored to your needs. Group inductions can also be delivered off-site in Force.

Advanced searching skills

We offer group database searching technique sessions to help you get the most out of our subscription e-resources which includes tips and tricks on refining your search. We also offer Information Skills Masterclass sessions introducing Systematic Review techniques for teams planning on undertaking Rapid Evidence Assessments, Guidelines or research projects.

We can also offer customised one-to-ones and small group sessions if you would like help with something more specific. These can take place at one of our sites, in your Force or even over the telephone.
