E-Books

What E-Books are available to NHS staff and students?

Cornwall Health Library has purchased a large number of E-Books across all subjects to supplement the titles bought for all NHS England staff and students.

Search for electronic books available to you through the library catalogue at www.swims.nhs.uk .

When searching the library catalogue be sure to choose the ‘Electronic Book’ search option on the left side of the screen. Also remember to limit your search to Truro or Bodmin in the ‘Just in these libraries‘ search box.

A help guide Electronic Books: How to find and use them is available.

To access these you will require an NHS OpenAthens login.

You may suggest titles that you think the library should purchase as an electronic book using our Book suggestions page.

The library also offers training on how to access and use the E-Books available to you. To book a course see the library Training page or Contact the library.
