Click on the links to access the Native Interfaces :
How can I log in to my library account, and is this different to Open Athens?
Your library account is separate to your Open Athens account. Your library account allows you to update your details, check what you currently have on-loan and renew checked out items. You can access it by going to SWIMS (see below) and logging in at the top left of the page. You can also reset your library password from here.
How can I access the library catalogue?
You can access our library catalogue through the search bar at the top of the page. If you prefer, you can also browse the library catalogue via SWIMS: the catalogue for health libraries in the South and West of England. You can access SWIMS here.
How do I request books and resources not in the library catalogue?
You can request items directly from the Knowledge and Library hub search. Search for what you would like, then select "request this item".
I need help for something that isn't covered here
