If the book or journal article you require is not available in the library we may be able to borrow it from another source. You will be informed if there is a charge before ordering.

You will have to log onto ELMS to request material online. Please contact the Library if you do not already have a PIN for access.

Article requests

pdf documents

There is no limitation on the number of item requests per member. We will obtain articles from other NHS libraries if not in stock or available online. The library may charge for requests obtained from organisations that charge us such as The British Library. You will be contacted in such instance for your agreement before requesting from such organisations.

Articles are either emailed as PDF documents when available electronically or sent to your workplace/department as photocopies.

Book requests

You can request up to 8 books (this includes books borrowed from own stock) but the library will charge fines for books returned after the due date. Fines are 10p per day per book.

Books can be renewed as long as they have not been reserved by another user.

Books will need to be collected from the Library.
