Books and Journals
The Library has a wide range of titles covering all aspects of clinical and non-clinical services. Details of our collection can be accessed through the catalogue . If a journal article or book is not available, we may be able to obtain it from other libraries nationwide.
Full-text journals, books and databases are available via NHS Evidence. A NHS OpenAthens account is required to access these and you can register at the same website.
Computers, printers, scanners and photocopiers are available at both Library sites and 24/7 pc access at the Library Annexe.
Database and Information Skills Training
(e.g. MEDLINE, CINAHL & COCHRANE Library) Contact us to arrange one-to-one or group training at one of the sites, the Annexe or in your workplace.
The Clinical Librarians provide an expert searching service and are able to access a wide range of databases and information resources on your behalf.
A personal Librarian for your Department provides access to information in the clinical setting, including ward rounds. Invite us to your meetings to find out what we offer. (York service only at present)
