What is KnowledgeShare

KnowledgeShare connects health care staff with their local NHS library and knowledge service. Registered users can also use KnowledgeShare to find colleagues with shared interests, helping to spread innovation and collaborate on service improvement.

NHS library and knowledge services (LKS) inform patient care, service improvement, clinical teaching and research through the provision of:

  • Evidence searches
  • Updates highlighting newly published health care information
  • Information skills teaching

KnowledgeShare allows LKS members to:

  • Request evidence searches from their LKS and find searches requested by colleagues elsewhere (where permission has been given).
  • Sign up for highly targeted updates based on their professional interests
  • Book onto LKS skills sessions and manage their bookings
  • Connect with colleagues based on shared professional interests


Changes to the BASE Library Service

As a response to Covid-19, some BASE libraries have now closed their counter services (all library closures will be posted on the Locations page). All library teams are still providing an enquiry service and can be contacted by email and phone if their counter is not open. Reservations are not available, however you may browse the catalogue and access e-resources. Items on loan have been automatically renewed and will not incur a fine. Most libraries are not providing new member registrations. More information on current service can be found here.
