Spotlight on Meanwhile, Back in the Library: Health

The Library is very excited to announce that its next exhibition will be ‘Meanwhile, Back in the Library’ which will look at how comics, graphic novels, cartoons, newspaper strips, caricatures and picture books can be used within academia and how they connect with  subject areas such as science, game design, film, journalism, autobiography and art. 

Why not use a comic and academic text together to help get into a subject! Here are a selection of health related comics to get you started. Unsure about this approach...take a look at these articles!

Just to add, you may feel like some recreational reading...there is also a link to the first book in the The Sandman series. Whilst it may not help with your assignments, its a pretty amazing read! Even when studying, you need to take a break and you can take a look at the Meanwhile, Back in the Library Reading List Online here.

NHS Athens Authentication

What is NHS Athens?
With your Athens Username & password, healthcare students from the date of commencement of an education programme which involves practice and placement within NHS provider services, for the duration of their programme are able to access additional NHS databases and journals online. You should  receive an email in your first year early in semester 1 detailing the username & password.

What are the benefits?

Some of the databases are the same as at SHU (e.g. CINAHL, MEDLINE) but there are some that may provide additional information e.g. EMBASE and the *BNF app (*see online resources tab on this guide).  When you login to NICE journals and databases you will see a list of what is on offer.

If you intend to work within the NHS, these resources will become your professional library.

What is my username?

Your NHS Athens username is nhsacshu followed by your Sheffield Hallam Unversity username, e.g. nhsacshub1234567.  If you don't know your password, go to the forgotten password page and enter your SHU email address (e.g. to be emailed a replacement password.  Contact if you have any problems. New NHS OpenAthens accounts were set up 11 Jan 2019.

NB: Staff need to contact  to ask for an account to be created.
