 It is important that librarians present their findings in the most useful way.  When health managers were asked about their information seeking behaviour and preferences for a national survey(Edwards et al)  (n=2092 across 59 trusts, carried out Feb-July 2011) 83% said that they preferred “short summaries of research with key bullet points rather than long articles or documents”.
