Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH)

The CASH website is a database which is used to capture all the latest publications from a selection of high quality sources, organised under a category structure. The content can then be used by LKS to produce personalised current awareness services for their own customers. Content submitted to the CASH by librarians and knowledge managers in the health sector. This collaborative working model helps to avoid duplication of effort and streamlines the production of high quality alerts across the system.

Daily COVID-19 updates and newsfeeds can be found here. See the instructions on using the infection control newsfeed to produce your own bulletin. Alternatively download and edit the word version uploaded onto the site each morning.

To contribute COVID-19 items to the database, complete this form, or contact Heather Gardner.
