Libraries

Welcome to the Libraries homepage

Libraries are located in each of the major hospitals in Wales and aim to provide a friendly, helpful and responsive high quality service to support patient care, education, continuing professional development, training and research.    Membership is open to local NHS Wales staff and also undergraduate medical, nursing and allied health students on clinical placement. 

In addition, all training grade doctors and dentists are registered with a Cardiff University network account which allows access to the University eLibrary and databases via the University portal: http://portal.cardiff.ac.uk

Each library provides an extensive range of services including:

  • Enquiry service
  • Information skills training both individually and in groups
  • Assistance with literature searching and systematic literature reviews
  • Advice on copyright
  • Book and journal collections both in print and electronically
  • Web based Voyager Library catalogue
  • Access to the NHS Wales e-Library for health via Athens login
  • Interlibrary document supply and book loans
  • Photocopying facilities, networked PCs and printers
  • Terminals connected to Cardiff University for authorised users
  • Eduroam wi-fi service in ABMUHB and Cardiff and Vale UHB

All library services are underpinned by a commitment to excellent customer care as outlined in the pdfAWHILES libraries customer care policy (2013).

Please contact your local library for further information and how to join.
