Medicine Subject Guide

A guide to library and information resources for medical students

Access to libraries while on Placement

While on placement, you will have access to NHS hospital library facilities, many of which include borrowing books, making photocopies, using study spaces, and making enquiries. You will find details about location and opening hours below, and also links to the websites where you will be able to find out more information. Please check the website before visiting, and contact the hosting library should you need out of hours access or extra support.

Please remember that many of the services and resources available to you as a SGUL student are accessible electronically, so you can still use them while away from the St George's site.
