Research, anywhere, anytime

We’ve been supplying vital research to NHS England, Public Health England, NICE and other health organisations to aid the fight against Covid-19.

Our staff have provided access to research articles for the organisations working to manage the impact of the pandemic either directly related or indirectly, such as cyber bullying and mental health.

Our On Demand service supplies chapters and articles from our collections and subscribed resources on request so our users can have them when and where they need them. Since the outbreak the service has continued with the remote supply of digital content held both by us or via publisher partner’s websites.

We’re prioritising Covid-19 related On Demand enquiries at the moment - you can find out more about our On Demand service. We’ve also published a collection guide to help you find free to access research related to Covid-19 online. And if you have a specific research query, you can contact our Reference Team via Quick Chat or email.
