Focus on E-Journals

Many of you may know that through NHS Athens at a national level, there is access to a host of e-journals online but you may not know that the library here at Mid Yorks purchases e-journal content at a local level specifically with our own Trust’s specialities in mind. Some of these are shown here, but in total we buy over 30 journals for the Trust.

More information is available from the library. You can post a query on this blog, send us a tweet, or alternatively, come in and see us and ask about access or give us some feedback on our journal content!
