What is it? KnowledgeShare is our targeted current awareness service. Whenever we find high impact documents in your area, we will let you know. KnowledgeShare contains summarised evidence; you will not be inundated with primary research articles.

Why use it? We give you the latest high-level evidence in your field.

How does it work? Your KnowledgeShare profile is created to be as broad or as specific as you need. For example, you could receive everything published on cardiovascular diseases or limit to receive items related to delirium. N.B. Results will relate to conditions rather than interventions.       
*You must be a library member and have an NHS OpenAthens account to receive current awareness. Please register to join the library and register for OpenAthens if you have not already done so.

How will you use my contact details?
We will use your email address to send you evidence updates. We will also use your information to contact you about (but not limited to): library services and events, to gather feedback about using Knowledgeshare and your Knowledgeshare account.

How can I see the data you hold on me?
If you wish to view the data that we hold on you on our Library Management System, please contact papworth.library@nhs.net and we will reply to your request within 7 working days.

How long will you keep my data?
We will keep your data for the length of your library membership which will end when you leave the Trust. We will unassign you from our library service on Knowledgeshare. However, your data will remain on the Knowledgeshare system (for two years) so that you can be reassigned to another library service if you move trusts. We will keep non-identifiable data about library service usage for as long as is necessary to submit statistics to Health Education England and to compile our annual report.

The Library service has a legal basis for processing your data, as we cannot provide the service without the processing mentioned.

Can I ask for my data to be deleted?
Yes, you have the right to ask to be forgotten. You can email papworth.library@nhs.net at any time and ask to be deleted from our system. If you do not have any items on loan, we will delete your account within 7 working days of receiving your request.

If you request for your account to be deleted and you have items on loan, we will keep your data until the items have been returned. After the items have been returned, we will delete your account within 7 working days.

If you wish for your Knowledgeshare account to be permanently deleted (rather than unassigned on the system), you can email papworth.library@nhs.net and we will delete your account within 7 working days.
