Borrowing items

Most books can only be loaned to one person at a time. If a book you would like to borrow is already on loan, place a reservation on the title and you will be notified when it is available.

I have access to BorrowBox with my public library…

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