New ScHARRHUD Database launches!

 On the 4th November The Information Resources team launched an innovative new bibliographic database - ScHARRHUD.

ScHARRHUD (Health Utilities Database) provides details of studies containing health state utility values (HSUVs). Whilst the focus is on generic, preference-based measures, such as the EQ-5D, the database extracts and indexes the names of all instruments used in studies.

ScHARRHUD was instigated by the ScHARR Information Resources Group. A pilot version of the database was developed using start-up funding from the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS). ScHARRHUD  is a free, searchable, web-based resource and can be found at

The launch took place at the ISPOR (International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes  Research) conference in Dublin and we were delighted with the response we received from visitors to our Stand in the exhibition. 

If you would like to keep up with the latest developments on ScHARRHUD you can follow us on Twitter (@ScHARRHUD) or register your interest by email at

ScHARR Library Picnic fundraising event

ScHARR Library has received a certificate of recognition for the money raised at the ScHARR Library Picnic back in July of this year. The total amount raised was £160.15 and the certificate is now on display in the library.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the picnic and kindly donated their time and money. We couldn't have done it without you!

Look out for the ScHARR Library Picnic next summer and make sure you don't have a big lunch that day.
