The NHSGGC Library Network provides library and information services to all staff working within NHSGGC and its partner organisations.
With nine staffed libraries across NHS Glasgow and Clyde, we offer access to an extensive collection of healthcare, management and social work resources, in print, on-line and on time.
To use our library resources, as well as having access to most print and electronic library resources within NHS Scotland, please register for an Athens account at https://www.athensregistration.scot.nhs.uk, if you have not already done so.
Keep up to date with Shelf Life, the NHSGGC Library Network newsletter.
The NHSGGC Library Network has joined with the rest of NHS Scotland in a new library management and resource discovery system.
What does this mean?
The new system replaces the search function of the existing Knowledge Network and the NHSGGC library catalogue. It is a one stop shop to find out what books are held across NHS Scotland, to reserve, request and renew them, as well as access full text journal articles and both local and national e-books.
What do I have to do?
If you don’t already have a NHSGGC Athens account register for one now at https://www.athensregistration.scot.nhs.uk.
If you already have an account, please check that your contact details are up to date. If you need help changing them, just contact our Athens team – firstname.lastname@example.org.
What other changes are there?
We are longer using library cards, so once you are registered with Athens you will automatically become a library member. This will entitle you to borrow up to 10 books for a loan period of 4 weeks, with an automatic renewal of up to 26 weeks, as long as no one else requires the item.
