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 everything published on obstetrics or limit to receive items related to gestational diabetes.

An NHS OpenAthens account will help you to make the most of this service, enabling direct access to full text documents where available.  You can register at:

Alternatively, request direct from our Document Supply Service on the Library homepage

We will also contact you occasionally by email to:

  • Send you information about the LKS and new publications in health and social care
  • Notify you if you are invited to join a community of practice
  • Recommend colleagues to you who share your professional interests

You may change your settings at any time at (using your NHS OpenAthens account). *Membership to KnowledgeShare is restricted to staff and students eligible for an NHS OpenAthens account.
