About Us

UCL's biomedical libraries support clinical practice, education and research at UCL's affiliated NHS Trusts as part of our Service Level Agreement. Membership of the libraries is open to all staff of our affiliated Trusts.

Medical students
The libraries provide study space, access to extensive biomedical and health collections, and training and support. We also collaborate closely with libraries at District General Hospitals to facilitate access to resources for medical students whilst they are on clinical placement.

We continue to develop our support to healthcare through our Library Services Strategy and have played a key role in the NHS-HE Forum, which works to develop connections between NHS and Higher Education networks and systems.
