Practical Tips for Facilitating Research is an excellent tool for librarians who want to be a resource for the research groups within their facilities.

I would highly recommend this book to any librarian working with researchers in the health sciences, and to many of our colleagues working in other disciplines, for that matter. The book is short, realistic, practical, easy to read, and extremely useful for generating ideas. As for me, I am still starry eyed. I know I will be referring back to this book and my copious marginalia for the foreseeable future-that is of course until my colleagues start asking to borrow my copy!
