Print journal subscriptions are now negotiated on a national level by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and most titles are available to search and browse on the Knowledge Network.
This new arrangement follows an extensive needs assessment and tendering process to ensure cost savings to NHS boards, increases access to journals and improved currency of journal collections to all health and social care staff in Scotland.
A back run of print journals, held in storage, is available for users to browse on request. Details of our print journals ( which cover health management, public health and health improvement) and their availability are listed here.
Inter-Library Loans The PHRU operates an Inter-Library-Loans and Document Delivery Service for NHSGGC Board staff. Before requesting a copy of an article, staff should check the Knowledge Network to see if the desired article is available online. For articles which cannot be accessed via the Knowledge Network, staff should complete the Document Delivery form and return it to a member of IM staff. To arrange a book loan please complete the Inter-Library-Loan form and return it to IM. For further information on this or any other service please contact us at:
The Knowledge Network replaced the NHS Scotland e-library as of the 1st March 2011 and provides access to more than 6000 full text journals. The PHRU Information Management team offers training in how to use the Knowledge Network either in group settings or individual drop-in sessions. Contact us to discuss training to any other aspect of the Knowledge Network.
