Home

Our libraries are open to all staff and students on placement with the Trust. Members are welcome to use any of our four libraries (Caludon Centre, St Michael’s, Manor Court and Brooklands). For users that prefer to access our services from home or workplace, we offer a wide range of electronic resources.

Please take a few minutes to watch our Library Induction video for an overview of the services.

OpenAthens is an authentication system that acts as a key to unlock access to resources for eligible health and care staff.

An NHS OpenAthens account gives access from any device, to NHS-funded:

  • online books
  • journals
  • databases
  • evidence sources
  • e-learning.

This includes resources purchased nationally for all staff and any additional resources purchased locally by employer organisations.

Access is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Once you have an account, the best place to start your search is the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub. This gives you a single place to start your search across a range of resources for your work, professional development, study and research.

The Hub includes all national and local NHS content, allows in-depth database searching, gives access to clinical decision-making tools and other online resources, all in one place.
