Keeping up to date


We help staff stay up to date with the latest developments in paediatric healthcare across a wide range of specialist areas:

Current Awareness Services

We offer a variety of specialist services to help staff stay up to date with the latest developments.

One of our current awareness services is our Netvibes site where we collect together the current table of contents from a variety of journals on 44 different subjects. Click on the + below to expand the full list and see the links.

Our Book a Librarian service gives the opportunity for an individual or a departmental group to discuss their current awareness needs and how best to manage staying up-to-date. Please request a session via the form below or contact us. We will respond to your request within two working days.
