Our guide to full text has a quick guide to accessing full text journal articles from the Knowledge Network and other sources.

Current Awareness Bulletins (CABs) provide details of recent publications in specific subject areas. Emailed directly to your inbox, CABs are prepared personally by NHSGGC librarians and librarians from other Boards, and are available to all staff.
