How do I join?

Fill out a library membership form and bring your identification along with you to the Library, it is that simple. The form is attached at the bottom of the page if you wish to print the form before you visit the library. We will then issue you with a temporary library card and you can begin using your card straight away. Your permanent library card will then be printed at the Health Library and you will be informed when it is ready to pick up here at the LERC. Once you have your library card this is the only library card you will need for both the Health Library at Royal Stoke and here at the Library Education and Resource Centre. If you are based at the Royal Stoke University Hospital, work between sites, or live closer to Royal Stoke University Hospital then please be aware your card is accepted at both libraries and you are welcome to visit, borrow from, and work in either library.


How many books can I borrow?

You can borrow up to 12 items from the library for up to 4 weeks. Please see Your Library Account for more information about renewing or reserving your books and to find out how to check for fines relating to any overdue books you may


How do I access Online Resources?

Once registered you will have access to all the electronic resources available nationally, regionally and also content only available to those working for UHNM. You also have access to all the ebooks available through the Library Search. For further information check our online resources section.
