The ELHT LKS has won a service development award from the North West Health Libraries Group (LIHNN). The award was won for the development of a current awareness service using a mobile app ReadQXMD
The app has streamlined library processes, engaged with clinical staff and allowed a more collaborative approach to sharing evidence based information in ELHT. Library staff have liaised with clinical departments and subject experts to follow certain journals and themes via the app. The Library staff then pick out useful articles and create collections which users can follow via the app or read online.
The library team has worked hard to produce these bulletins and it has been a real team effort with Clare, Patrick, Charlotte, Sarah, Lauren and Judith all being heavily involved in their production. Thanks go to our senior managers Gill Cairns and Julia Owen who helped support the innovation.
We were very pleased to be recognised in a strong field of submissions during this extraordinary year. We hope to develop further bulletins and we are more than happy to look at other subject areas.
