Please find below guidance on locating and renewing books.
To find out if a book is available, please search our online catalogue Elms. Our Elms user guide provides visual step-by-step instructions. Alternatively, follow the short summary steps below.
If you change the drop down menu to Papworth, you can search our local print collection. You can search by title or author.
If we do not have the book you need, you can change the drop down menu to ALL and then search other libraries in our East of England consortium. If the title is available in one of these libraries, please email or phone us with the book details and ask us to place a hold request.
If the item is not held by any libraries in our consortium, please email or phone us and we will see if we can arrange an inter-library loan from a different NHS library.
To renew an item currently on loan, please visit our online catalogue Elms. Our Elms user guide provides visual step-by-step instructions. Alternatively, follow the short summary steps below.
In the top right hand corner, you can login with your User ID and PIN. (If you do not remember your login details, please email us and we can provide them for you). Once logged in, find the My Account tab. Choose the option to Renew My Materials and then select the items you wish to renew.
If the items are on loan from the Papworth print collection, you can renew them twice (as long as another library user has not requested them).
If the items are on loan from another library, please email us and usually we will be able to renew them on your behalf.
