Yesterday we had the pleasure of introducing the library service to the Trust’s new Foundation Year One Doctors. There was a lot of interest in our online resources so here’s some information/links to some of the key online resources, which can be accessed with an NHS OpenAthens account.
An NHS OpenAthens account is your key to access lots of online resources, from journals to eBooks, to point of care tools.
- If you need to register for an NHS OpenAthens account you can self-register online here. If you already have an NHS OpenAthens account but have forgotten your log in details please click here.
- Our registration help guide can be found on the library website (here) or a paper copy can be picked up from the library.
- 1000’s of online journals are available to access with your NHS OpenAthens account, including the Wiley Medical & Nursing Collection.
- Details of all online journals the service has access to can be found here. You will need to be logged in with your NHS Athens account to see all content the service is subscribed to.
- The Oxford Medicine online collection includes over 130 highly regarded titles including the Oxford Textbook of Medicine, Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme & the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, to name a few. View the full title list here [pdf] 110KB).
