UCL Institute of Neurology



Our Library services  are listed below. Please note that services marked with * are available to users based at Queen Square only. More information about Library services available to different groups of users is available..

Document Delivery *

We can obtain items on your behalf from a range of other libraries. There is a charge for this service. Alternatively, users may wish to visit other libraries in the vicinity in person, we are close to the British Library, a range of other UCL libraries which hold clinical and research collections. 

Current Awareness *

Each month we can supply details of new literature published in your chosen field. Library staff search a wide range of databases using a personalised search profile, made up of any combination of keywords, journal titles and search limits you suggest. An application form is available from the Library.

Literature Searches *

Similar to the above, but a one-off search conducted by library staff. Particularly aimed at infrequent searchers.

Other Services

Training *

Library staff offer expert training and advice on a wide range topics, particularly relating to databases, and electronic information. Regular bookable training sessions are run each week. We also run group training sessions either in your department or, for small groups, in the library. Guides to the major databases are available from our web site.

Printing, photocopying & scanning

  • A laser printer is available - black & white only.
  • A photocopier / scanner is available - offering both black & white and colour.

Users must comply with copyright regulations, details of which are displayed next to the machines. Photocopying and printing charges are payable by cash only.


We are happy to help with your enquiries, either in the Library, by post, phone, fax or e-mail. Library staff have wide ranging experience and expertise, particularly in databases, electronic information, publishing, database searching, reference enquiries and binding. Unfortunately, we are unable to deal with specific medical queries from members of the public. As an alternative, Library staff have compiled and maintain a list of Patient Support Links, which gives details of over 150 neurological support groups and charities.
