Current Awareness/ Alerting Services Directory Launched

Today we are launching the Current Awareness/Alerting Services Directory which builds on the work of the Knowledge for Healthcare Current Awareness Services Task and Finish Group.

The Directory is designed as a finding tool with a built in way of sharing what you create for your current awareness and alerting services.  We have added some examples with one entry per organisation or person. We have also provided some best practice guidelines on creating current awarenes/alerting products.

In the Directory you can find:

  1. bulletins on a range of topics (but not new acquisitions bulletins)
  2.  CAS and alerting schemes
  3.  who has experience in using certain tools to create CAS and alerting bulletins or expertise in a topic (e.g. commissioning)

Most importantly you can share with pride both your knowledge and information on the bulletins that you create or schemes that you take part in.

We encourage you to explore the directory by going to the Current Awareness section on the menu.

We want you to help develop the directory so it becomes indispensable to us all.

Let us show what we are best at – collaboration (and maybe a little bit of borrowing and repurposing) and ensure that as many library and knowledge services as possible have an entry in the directory.

We are waiting to hear from you…
