Some of our most frequently asked questions are ‘how do I check if you have this book?’ and ‘can I renew my books online?’. We have briefly touched on this in a previous post but..
..so we’ll aim to answer those questions in this post.
Let’s start with the library catalogue, which can be accessed by clicking here (you can also access the catalogue using the library iPad.. read more in this post.)
Here you can search for an item, view a complete subject list and see at a glance items which have recently been added to stock.
From here you can also manage your library account online. All you need to do is enter your reader code (which can be found on the membership barcode issued to you) and a P.I.N (if you don’t have a P.I.N a member of library staff can help you to set one up).
Once you’re logged in you’ll be able to:
- Renew your current loans (on up to three occasions unless they have been reserved by another library member)
- Reserve books that are currently on loan to others
- View your account to see details of books you have on loan
- Access your loan history and any charges you may have accumulated
If you’d like more information on managing your library account online why not download our handy guide ‘How to view, renew and search the library catalogue [pdf]? Alternatively, please feel free to ask a member of library staff who will be happy to help 😃.
The Wiley Medical & Nursing Collection brings together over 400 premium healthcare journal titles, including Journal of Advanced Nursing,British Journal of Surgery and BJOG to name just a few. A complete list of the titles in the collection can be viewed here.
To access the online content staff will need an NHS Athens account. If you’re not yet registered for NHS Athens you can register here.
We have signed up to a trial until the end of May 2017, with a view to purchase. We are keen to obtain feedback on this content from our library users, so please get in touch with the team if you have any comments or suggestions.
If you have any queries please get in touch with a member of library staff (email@example.com / x53899) who will be happy to help!
