Our libraries are open to all staff and students on placement with the Trust. Members are welcome to use any of our four libraries (Caludon Centre, St Michael’s, Manor Court and Brooklands). For users that prefer to access our services from home or workplace, we offer a wide range of electronic resources.
Helping you access the latest evidence tailored to your needs
What is KnowledgeShare
KnowledgeShare connects health care staff with their local NHS library and knowledge service. Registered users can also use KnowledgeShare to find colleagues with shared interests, helping to spread innovation and collaborate on service improvement.
KnowledgeShare allows members to:
- Request evidence searches from their LKS and find searches requested by colleagues elsewhere (where permission has been given).
- Sign up for highly targeted updates based on their professional interests
- Book onto LKS skills sessions and manage their bookings
- Connect with colleagues based on shared professional interests
For more information on how KnowledgeShare can be tailored to your needs and assistance getting started, email:
Evidence-based Support during COVID-19
The Library and Knowledge Team is currently available in each library at least once a week and working remotely. We are still available to facilitate all knowledge requirements, including literature search (or any information) requests, new registrations and training.
The physical libraries are still open and we are happy for you to borrow and request books, please complete the paper Self-issue forms in the library and these will be processed by the library staff when they are next on site.
Equally, we are on hand to continue supporting access to evidence-based resources and maintaining access through OpenAthens, as well fulfilling the majority of journal article requests electronically.
Please email Wendy.townsend@covwarkpt for assistance.
