The library offers a current awareness service where our members can be notified of new publications in a relevant field. We currently run this tailored service on subjects such as Education, Management, Midwifery and Therapy  as well as two fortnightly bulletins called Ten Tasters - Medicine (which features selected articles from journals including The Lancet and BMJ) and Nursing News (providing a review of recent articles from major nursing journals including Nursing Standard, British Journal of Nursing and the Journal of Advanced Nursing). 

Our bulletins include details of new books, articles and other relevant publications. Many of the links contained in our bulletins will be to abstracts but there are links within the bulletins should you wish for us to obtain copies of any full-text articles or if you encounter any problems accessing the links.

If you would like to receive these bulletins as soon as they are produced then please contact the library to be added to the mailing list.

What is it?KnowledgeShare is our targeted current awareness service.  Whenever we find high impact documents in your area, we'll let you know.

Why use it? We give you the latest high-level evidence in your field.

How does it work? Your knowledgeShare profile is created to be as broad or as specific as you need. For example, you could receive anything published on obstetrics or limit to receive items related to gestational diabetes.
