For NHS Staff

NHS Grampian staff can join the University Library and borrow material. (The Library is open for reference purposes to everyone).

NHS Grampian staff can join in person at any site, although you will may find it easier to register at the Medical Library. You will need your NHS ID badge and we will ask for the length of your contract, so we can make your membership last as long as you need it. You will be given a Library reader card with a unique barcode and this should be given to library staff whenever you borrow an item.

Library membership entitles you to borrow from the University Library, but not (unless you also have a University contract) to use the networked computing facilities. For more details of library membership for NHS Grampian staff, please contact us.
