 Frequently asked questions

What do students need to do to join the library?

The library offers membership to students whilst on placement at Oxford Health FT.  Inductions are provided for some large student groups including medical students and nursing students. Students may request a local induction at their OHFT library.

What facilities are available?

Loans: A maximum of 12 books may be borrowed at any one time.

The standard loan period is 28 days; short loans are for 14 days.

Items may be renewed twice (subject to recall). Renewals may be made either in person, via the internet, email or by telephone.

Returning items: We send pre- and post- due date reminders by email, so an up to date email address is required. NB it is advisable to check junk mail for messages from the library and/or enable such messages if possible.

We chase people for unreturned books (a reminder email is sent two days before the book is due, and then three further emails are sent after the book is due). We do our best to contact users to get books back, but after a certain length of time we will send out invoices for the cost of the book(s).

Suggestions: We welcome suggestions for purchase of items to support University of Bedfordshire students. Email us or complete a suggestions form.

Reading and study rooms: (bookable) at Warneford Library only.

Copying and printing: Ask staff if needed. May be chargeable.

PCs: OHFT PCs are available at all libraries – log ins provided by OHFT IT.

Training: Students are usually referred to their University provider for information skills training but OHFT library staff may provide a limited amount of brief training support on request.

Can students register for local NHS OpenAthens?

Yes – students should self-register via the NHS Evidence webpage. See also our OpenAthens guide
