the dilemma
The dilemma
  • How to provide current awareness to a diverse range of departments and professions?
  • How to avoid duplicating work already being done elsewhere in the NHS?
  • The solution? Netvibes!
  • www.netvibes.com/sathlibraries
why netvibes
Why Netvibes?
  • Easy to add RSS feeds from any source
  • Easy to create public pages (Universes) with multiple ‘tabs’
  • No need for our users to register or login to view the site
the site
The site…
  • We called it Team Knowledge Update to reflect our support for Team Knowledge Officers
  • Contains multiple ‘tabs’ for a range of subjects
team knowledge update contains
Team Knowledge Update contains…
  • Contents of the latest
  • journals, automatically
  • updated
  • Those available in
  • full-text with NHS
  • Athens accounts are
  • marked in green
team knowledge update contains6
Team Knowledge Update contains…
  • Latest news from National
  • Library for Health
  • Specialist Libraries
  • and other sources
team knowledge update contains7
Team Knowledge Update contains…
  • Recent books added to
  • our libraries
  • (currently via Shelfari
  • Widgets)
rss feeds come from
RSS feeds come from…
  • National Library for Health (Specialist Libraries and other feeds from the RSS directory)
  • National electronic Library for Medicine
  • BMJ and AMA Journals (full-text for NHS Athens)
  • BioMed Central journals (free full-text)
  • MedWorm (pre-configured and search query results
more rss feeds
More RSS feeds…
  • EBSCOHost databases (CINAHL full-text and Health Business elite)
  • This provides RSS feeds for journals available in full-text for NHS Athens and for most print journals held in our libraries
advantages of the site
Advantages of the site
  • Shows a selection of journals and RSS feeds available in a given subject
  • Access to full-text at article level (where available via NHS Athens or open access)
  • Assists users who don’t want to set up an RSS reader or search for feeds
promoting local resources
Promoting local resources
  • Provides contents for journals purchased in print for our libraries
  • Displays details of our new books by subject
  • Somewhere to display our local RSS feeds (such as our blog and local staff publications on Connotea)
the idea of browsing
The idea of browsing…
  • Recreating the current journals display (but in this case, more usefully ‘shelved’ by subject)
  • Finding interesting articles by serendipity
  • See new books on a topic (rather than just a list of all books for the previous month)
email alerts from the site
Email alerts from the site
  • Feedback has shown that users still like email alerts
  • We’re using Yahoo! Pipes and Feedburner to create email subscription services for each subject tab
  • Users will receive an email each day something new appears on their chosen subject
creating further feeds
Creating further feeds
  • We’re trying out Feed43 to create feeds from:
  • Subject categories of Behind the Headlines (e.g. cancer)
  • New books by subject from our Library Management System (OLIB 7.6)
the social aspect
The ‘social’ aspect
  • Our users and other health libraries can:
  • Add feeds from our pages to their own Netvibes or iGoogle pages
  • Clone our Yahoo! Pipes to create their own combined feeds
the future
The future…
  • New feeds from the proposed NHS England alerting service can be added when available
  • More subject tabs will be added in response to feedback
  • We’ll do an evaluation of the site after six months
