UCL-procured electronic resources supporting the NHS - A significant number of resources licensed through UCL Library Services are accessible using a personal NHS OpenAthens account, directly from the desktop at your workplace or at home.
In-library access to UCL's electronic resources - NHS library members can access the full range of licensed UCL Library Services electronic journals from dedicated computers (Explore Access Points) located within UCL libraries. While restrictions are in place limiting access to our libraries and on-site facilities, NHS library members can request electronic copies of journal articles and book chapters which are normally only available onsite via the UCL Library Explore Access Points, to be emailed directly to them.
Interlending and document supply - NHS library members can use our Interlending and Document Supply service to request items which are not already held in any of the UCL library collections.
