Full access to all the resources on the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub requires an NHS Open Athens password. This is usually available to NHS staff and to University medical students on accredited courses.
At the same time, basic searches can still be carried out on the Knowledge Hub platform, and the training resources may also be accessible without a password. Tracking and saving your progress on these courses would require the NHS password, however.
The Hub also provides really useful self-directed training material on literature searching, in particular on how to identify a search topic and suitable resources and developing a search strategy. Most of the material is applicable beyond the specific Knowledge Hub platform and will therefore be useful to students and others using resources such as databases and other sources via institutional gateways such as FindIt@Bham.
The Literature searching module has 3 sections.
