Healthcare Databases

Once you have searched healthcare databases (such as Medline, Cinahl, etc) you can choose to save your search and create an alert. This means the database will automatically run your search and email you any new articles that match your search strategy.


Many websites allow you to subscribe to RSS feeds. This means every time the website is updated the updates are sent to your feed reader, a place where you collect and access your feeds. You can keep up to date with new information on a multitude of websites, including journal publishers.


Twitter allows you to "follow" and therefore keep up to date with people, conferences, journals, libraries, etc. Please note that not all NHS Trusts allow access to Twitter.
