Information Resources

As a member of the NHS you have a wide range of physical and online information resources available to you. From books to journals you’ll find links below to find what you need.

You may need an OpenAthens username and password to access online resources. Register here for free.

Contact your library for more information on accessing and using these resources, or book in for a training session on literature searching. You might want to take a look at our online self-study training pages too for lots more help with finding and evaluating information.

Knowledge and Library Hub

The first place to search is the Knowledge and Library Hub. It pulls together journals, books and e-publications, clinical decision support tools, NICE pathways and guidelines and databases such as Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL and PsycInfo. Click on your Trust below to go to the search box.

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension available for Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and other browsers that makes accessing full-text journal articles much easier. Simply install the extension and select the NHS organisation you work for. It will then indicate if an article is available in full-text through your library.

LibKey Nomad checks library subscriptions as well as Open Access journals to see if the article is available in full text. It also works on many publisher websites, along with PubMed and Wikipedia, and adds links to access the full-text or PDF (where available) making it easier to login and saving you time when accessing evidence.
