University of Leeds Library
The Trust has a Service Level Agreement with the University of Leeds which allows all Trust staff to join the University Library and have borrowing rights at all the University’s libraries: Brotherton Library, Edward Boyle Library, Health Sciences Library, CSB Library at St James’s.
To join, all you need to do is go to one of the libraries, show a valid current Trust ID badge, and register.
More information on what is available under the SLA can be found at http://library.leeds.ac.uk/info/200215/health/412/information_for_nhs_employees.
As part of the SLA, Trust staff may use university electronic resources. These are ONLY available from PCs within one of the university libraries or in the CSB Library at St James’s, which is shared with the Trust’s own library service. Trust staff, other than those with Honorary University appointments, DO NOT have remote (off-campus) access to University e-resources.
The university library catalogue can be found at http://lib.leeds.ac.uk/ and this will include details of all the journals (print or electronic) which are taken by the University, and to which we have access.
