Social Work for Healthcare Library: Keeping Up To Date

How to keep Up To Date

Keeping up to date with current research, publications, reports etc is difficult.  Here I have highlighted various ways the library service can be of assistance. 

  •  subscribe to the current awareness bulletin(s) you are interested in to receive a list of recently published information as a 1 page PDF with links to enable you to access the full text with a few clicks
  • subscribe to Read by QxMD - journal alerts to your smart phone
  • set up your own journal alerts  (Zetoc)
  • Create your own individual specific search alerts ( create a search, save it and create an alert to run automatically once a month & email any newly published articles ).

Current Awareness Bulletin

Current Awareness Bulletin for Social Workers

This Current Awareness Bulletin (CAB) lists recent research and articles of relevance to social workers, making it easier for you to keep up-to-date with current developments.  Several journals are scanned each month to select the articles to create the CAB. You will receive a Bulletin each month.

You can sign up to receive the bulletin when it is published by emailing me : Hazel.Neale@healthcarelibrary.qub.ac.uk

Please note  Membership of the Healthcare Library is required in order to connect directly to the full text of featured articles.
