Login with your UHNM Open Athens account and check the NHS A-Z journals before you request the article to see if we have access nationally or locally.

Request a Book

Books can be requested from other libraries if we don’t have them in the library, or if they are heavily reserved. Items available on library search can be requested between the Health Library and Library Education and Resource Centre using your online library account, the item can be picked up or returned at either location.
Please check the library catalogue first to see if we already have the book available.
