Health sciences: Using other libraries

Using other libraries

When conducting specialist research, the Library may not always stock everything you need. If this happens, you have a number of options:

Before you visit another library

If you do plan to visit another library, please check first of all that we do not have the item you need. Advice on using the library can be found on our Finding Resources page. Alternatively, please ask a member of staff at the Helpdesk or contact the Subject Liaison Librarian for your Department.

Remember, if the item you need is on a reading list, we will make every effort to purchase this for the Library, so please let us know the details.

Where there are specific libraries of interest for your subject, these will be listed below.
