Joining the Library
To join the library, complete the online registration form or use the paper edition as supplied.
When filling out the registration form, you will need to choose a home library of either Telford or Shrewsbury Health Library. This is the library you should send any article or photocopy requests too. You will still be able to borrow books and use the study, IT and other facilities in either Health Library.
You will also need to choose a password to enable you renew and reserve books online. Once you have completed your registration form, please return it to your chosen home library. You will be sent your library membership card and an induction pack in the internal mail.
Benefits of Joining the Library
You need never set foot inside the library to use many of our services:
- Renew and request books online using the online library catalogue
- Postal loans - books can be issued and sent to your workbase, providing you are on the internal mail system
- Inter-library loans - borrow items from other Shropshire Health Libraries and have them sent direct to your workbase
- Article requests - fill in and submit an article request form by post
Using the Library
When you have registered with the library, you will recieve a library card with a barcode on the back. Using your library barcode and your chosen password, you will be able to log on to the library catalogue, SHeLib, and view all of the items held in Shropshire Health Libraries.
To log in to your account, click on 'Log In' in the left hand column, under 'My Account'. You will need to enter your library barcode number and the password you chose on your registration form.
Once you have logged in, you will be able to change your password, view items you currently have out on loan, renew items and reserve items.
If you reserve an item online, when it becomes available it will be posted out to your workplace, providing you are on the internal mail system.
Article and book requests
Before requesting a book or article from your home library, please check the online library catalogue to see if a copy is already held in a Shropshire Health Library. If the item is not in stock, you will need to fill in an article and book request form. Please note that you will need to complete a hard copy request form, as the copyright declaration needs to be signed before the request can be processed.
Once you have completed the form, please post it back to your home library using the address provided on the form.
