Using the Library



KnowledgeShare is a targeted current awareness service.

It provides you with personalised updates via a regular email, on subjects of your choice relevant to your professional interests.

It is an excellent way of keeping up to date with new evidence and information in your areas of interest. The alerts include resources such as guidelines and systematic reviews along with selected journals articles and reports.

You choose how frequently you would like to receive the email updates.

Many NHS libraries use KnowledgeShare, so if you are joining ESNEFT from another Trust and already have a KnowledgeShare account please get in touch so we can arrange for your details to be transferred to us.


The library can also help keep you up to date on a range of different areas. 

Visit our current awareness page for more.
