Current awareness

KnowledgeShare: personalised current awareness

Overwhelmed by information or not sure how to keep up-to-date? KnowledgeShare is a targeted current awareness service available from Reay House Library.

KnowledgeShare notifications are personalised and based on your stated interests, pointing you to guidelines, policy documents and a wide range of summarised evidence. KnowledgeShare focuses on the evidence that will change practice and you will not be inundated with primary research articles.

KnowledgeShare is a web-based system that is NHS OpenAthens password protected. 

Register online here or contact the library for further information.
