Print Books

We have a wide variety of print books that are available for you to loan.


Members can borrow up to eight books at a time subject to local service level agreements.


All books are available for an initial four week loan period.


A number of older editions of books are withdrawn from our stock at regular intervals and are available for sale on a first come first served basis. 


You can access eBooks through our library catalogue or directly through your NHS OpenAthens account.


To search through our library library catalogue enter a title or keyword in the search box. If available it will show on the screen, click on the record, click 'read me' and you will be asked for you NHS OpenAthens username and password.


To access eBooks directly from your NHS OpenAthens account you will need to sign in & under 'My Resources' click on the link for the EBook Library (EBL). Enter your title or keyword into the search box and any relevant titles will appear.


Any books with a green button can be read in full straightaway and any with an orange button can be browsed for five minutes and then requested with a few simple clicks.
