NHS Knowledge and Library Hub Search - find articles and e-resources

The NHS Knowledge and Library Hub allows you to search across all centrally purchased NHSE e-resources in addition to the subscriptions purchased for Barts Health. 

What this means is that you can search across almost all of our e-resources including e-books, articles, journals and multimedia content in one search and then refine your search until you find what you need.

eJournals via BrowZine - browse the ejournal collection

We hold over 1000 e-journals in our online collection. Journal articles can be searched for via the Knowledge and Library Hub Search, but if you have a number of journals that you look at regularly we reccommend using the BrowZine platform.

  1. Go to  
  2. Select 'Barts Health' as your library.
  3. Search for your journal title.
  4. If the journal is in our collection you will need to entre your OpenAthens credentials to access full text articles.
  5. If the journal is not in our collection you will be offered a form to request full text articles via document supply from one of our partner libraries.

You can also register for a BrowZine account.  This will allow you to create a 'virtual bookshelf' for your favourite e-journals.
