The NHS reforms provide many opportunities for health libraries. Health professionals are being increasingly encouraged to base their decisions on evidence from the literature. Librarians need to keep abreast of organizational and political change and develop skills in critical appraisal, in information retrieval and in teaching end‐users to do their own searching in order to support evidence‐based health care. A programme of professional development ‐ The Librarian of the 21st Century ‐ in Anglia and Oxford has provided a cohort of librarians with these skills. Describes the background and content of this programme.
