Students on Placement or Electives (Nursing & Midwifery) - no change to library loan rules

If you are embarking on a placement or elective during Semester 2:
You are welcome to continue to loan items from the library, but please be aware that normal loan periods will still apply.
Items may be requested by another user and recalled. Late return of requested items will still incur fines.

Automatic renewals will run as normal, but if you wish to try to avoid having an item potentially due for return at a time when you really cannot come in, you can attempt to renew your books early via your account on Library Search.

NHS eJournals – updates pending

There have been a number of journal titles cancelled this year for our NHS users.

Due to some problems we have encountered with the new Ovid software used to produce the NHS journals A-Z list and the article links in HDAS, the application of the changes may take some time.

Apologies for the delay. If you encounter any problems getting in access to articles, please contact staff at the Health Library.
