Borrowing items

Most books can only be loaned to one person at a time, but if you find a book you would like to borrow is already on loan you can easily place a reservation on the title.

I have access to BorrowBox with my public library…

You may have experience of using BorrowBox from your local public library. If you currently have BorrowBox access with your local public library, you can still use UKHSA’s BorrowBox collection. You will need to logout on the app and log back in using your UKHSA credentials to access UKHSA content.
