Get ahead of the game with SCoR's online library

As a member of the Society and College of Radiographers, you've a whole wealth of information and research at your fingertips – online and for free.

For many students – particularly first years – it might not always be obvious how best to use it. Read on to find out what the SCoR Policy and Document Library can offer you and how you can get the most out of it...

In 2008, the SCoR launched its first virtual library so members could effortlessly browse through all of its publications dating back to 2002. With ten years' worth of content, the library has become a vital resource not only for registered radiographers, but also those studying to become radiographers. 

If you've not yet entered the library, then it's well worth doing. It's an invaluable resource if you're working on a research project, not only because it contains the Society's policies and views on vast subject areas, but also because each document is fully referenced, meaning you are being pointed to more relevant literature.

You can search by date, author, and title in a vast number of topic areas, including: Agenda for Change, CPD, CT, education accreditation, MRI, students, ultrasound, x-ray and much more.

Documents listed in the Student section of the library include:

• Analysis of students and recent graduates survey 2012;
• Quality Standards for Practice Placements;
• Intimate Examinations and Chaperone Policy;
• Guidance for Student Radiographers on the Grievance Process; and,
• Dealing with bullying and harassment – A guide for student radiographers.

The library has a number of useful features such as a virtual briefcase, fully searchable content and printable pages, so you can store and return to information at a later date.
