The Library has a wide range of books available in a range of both print and electronic formats.
To find which books are available , run a search , limit to Healthcare Library Catalogue only, both print and e-books will be displayed and are clearly identified. If you only want to see the books that are available online, you can further limit your search by Resource type: e-books.
Book not available?
If there is a specific book you want to read and it is not in stock you can use the place request option and we will try to get it for you from another library. You can also email me with suggestions for new books to purchase.
It is always best to do your own literature search, however we recognise there are times when that just is not possible, either because you cannot find what you need, or you are pressed for time. if you need a search done, please complete this form and I will carry out a search for you.
The local Reading Well Collection was developed in The Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland in response to a request from a Clinical Psychologist based in the BHSCT Occupational Health Team who saw the value of providing books for staff who had been referred to their employer’s occupational health team.
The books cover topics such as: stress, anxiety, depression, grief, eating disorders, pain, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, postnatal depression etc.
Books are available for loan from the Healthcare library, either by calling in person, or by using the place request option on the library homepage. https://healthcarelibrary.qub.ac.uk/ The book can then be posted to your nearest branch library for collection, or it may be possible to post it to your work address.
