Because of our new KnowledgeShare Evidence Update service, we will be ceasing the existing Knowledge Update bulletins at the end of February.
All subscribers to Knowledge Updates should have received an email, so this is just a reminder to make sure you sign up soon to the KnowledgeShare Evidence Update service to ensure you continue to receive updates of new evidence from the library.
The big advantage of the new service is that it is more tailored to your specific interests, and personalisation of library services is an objective of the national Knowledge for Healthcare strategy.
We’ve been running the Knowledge Update service since 2009, and still have subscribers who have been receiving the bulletins since then. We had over 800 subscribers and 45 bulletins, but it was becoming increasingly unwieldy to manage, and was at risk from the potential loss of tools such as Feed.Informer that we used to combine RSS feeds, and Google Feedburner that we used to manage subscriptions. The service also relied on RSS feeds and these are not as well supported as they once were, with many sites no longer providing them.
We’ll be sad to see the old service discontinued, but we believe the new KnowledgeShare Evidence Update service is even better!
