Search for Books and eBooks

The Library & Knowledge Services catalogue can be found at www.swims.nhs.uk.

The catalogue includes all of the book details for items held in the SWIMS Network of health libraries across the South and West of England. This includes books and eBooks.  [Find out more about eBook platforms and collections on the eBook page.]

Enter key words in the search box to locate books in your area of interest or a particular title, then use the filters to the right to identify items held by the Library Service, Musgrove Park Hospital.

The catalogue presents the real time status of items, so clicking on a title will inform as to whether a book is on shelf or on loan and if on loan when it is due to be returned.

If you have details of the book you are looking for you may wish to use the advanced search option to search by ISBN.
