Current information

The Health Services Library is temporarily closed due to flooding.

Following the flood at the Health Services Library (caused by failure in a heating pipe), the carpet in the library will need to be replaced. The library will need to remain closed until this is completed, but we are now able to send books to you on request until Thursday 4th March..

Please use our catalogue, WebCat, to place a “Hold” on the book(s) you want. If you choose to collect it from the Hartley Library we will send it there for you. If you choose the Health Services Library option then we will either post it to your SGH internal mail location (UHS staff only), or to your home address (UHS & University staff / students). The last date you can place a hold is Friday 12th March; the library will then be closed to our team while the new carpet is laid.

We are aiming for the Health Services Library to reopen fully on Monday 26th April.

UHS staff: If you need to update your internal or home addresses, please email us at with your new address details as soon as possible.

Hartley Library is open as usual for study space.

Please contact us via our live chat service (08:00-18:00 Monday-Friday, 09:00-17:00 Saturday-Sunday) or email us at if you have any questions or concerns.
