Library Services

Members may borrow up to 6 books at any time. Books are issue for a period of 4 weeks at a time. You may renew your books online via the Library Catalogue. You will need your Reader Number and your PIN. If you do not have a PIN, please call us on 01274 364130 and we can create one for you.

If the book you require is not available from our library stock, we will consider purchasing this for the library. Please use our Book Suggestion Form. If the book is out of print or is too expensive, then we may be able to borrow this from another library.

To renew books please email - medical.library@bthft.nhs.uk.

The library provides access to the full text of a range of online journals. We also have some print holdings. If you require journal articles from titles we do not hold, we can request these from other libraries. This is a subsidised service - so the fee per article is only £3. You can pay this personally or charge it to your departmental budget.

To request an article, please complete our Article Request Form.
