Current awareness bulletins on coronavirus (COVID-19)

Alerting services


KnowledgeShare is a subscription-based web application produced by Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH).

One of its functions is to provide regular, targeted, personalised evidence updates to staff, based on their specific professional interests.

Subject-specific bulletins can also be produced.

See public COVID-related content in KnowledgeShare and more information about KnowledgeShare

Contact Ben Skinner if you have any queries.

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 is 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.

Find daily COVID-19 updates and newsfeeds. 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.

COVID-19 evidence alerts from McMaster PLUSTM

Covid-19 Evidence Alerts is part of the McMaster Premium LiteratUre Service (PLUSTM) which has been made available to non-subscribers.
