Integration of SWIMS into the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub

Page last updated: 20 Dec 2021

The National Discovery Service went live with a ‘soft launch’ on Fri 22nd Oct 2021.  It uses EBSCO’s Discovery Service product and is branded as the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub.

The experience of using the Knowledge and Library Hub will be slightly different for SWIMS Network libraries and their users from other regions from launch because of the inclusion of SWIMS catalogue records and the associated ability for end users to request SWIMS catalogue items.  In other parts of the country, regional catalogues will be included later.
