Coronavirus: Please see here for our latest COVID-19 advice for our patients and their relatives.
Please find below guidance on locating and renewing books.
Please be advised that we have ceased loaning print books during the Covid-19 outbreak. All loans have been renewed until 29th May 2020. Please make use of our e-books during this period which can be accessed via Clinical Key on the electronic resources page.
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. When you find the item you require, click 'place hold' and we will be notified. (You need to be logged in with your library account details).
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, again, please click 'place hold' and the holding library will be notified.
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.
Items can be renewed as many times as required so long as no other user has requested them.
If the items are on loan from another library outside of the East of England, please email us and usually we will be able to renew them on your behalf.
