Finding material in the library

You can use Hunter to search our collection and find:

  • books and e-books
  • journals and articles
  • more information, such as DVDs and theses.

Read the Hunter FAQs for information on how to search and access material.

At present, we are offering a 'click and collect' service to enable you to borrow books.

Resource or Reading lists

If you have a resource  or reading list in Canvas, you can search for the items by author or title in Hunter.

Read the Understanding your reading list guide for more help.

Print books

To find a print book in the library, you will need to take note of the book’s call number, which will be listed in the item record in Hunter. This will be a series of letters and numbers which correspond with the location of the book on the shelves. The call number will be listed on the spine of the book.

Print journals

Most of our journals are available electronically. Some titles are available in print as well. You can browse the latest issues of our print collection in the quiet group study area located by the research enquiries desk.

Back issues of our print collection are located in the silent study area opposite the research enquiries desk. These issues are reference only.

Older issues, pre-1975, may be stored in the archives. To request one of these items, speak to a member of library helpdesk staff. We collect items from the archive twice weekly on Tuesday and Friday. These items are reference only.


Some theses are available online by searching within ‘Books and more’ in Hunter.

To view a print thesis, please complete a thesis request form. We aim to make theses available within five working days and you will be notified by email once it is ready for collection. Please note that theses are reference only and must be looked at in the Library. Please ensure that you have washed your hands before handling a thesis. 

Further help

More information on finding material in the library is available in our libguides, help pages or your subject guide.

Go to the research enquiries desk for more focused support or contact the liaison team.

Finding more sources of information

You can search all of the journals we subscribe to using Hunter. For more in-depth literature searching, use our databases. In the A-Z databases listyou will find a range of specialist search platforms such as OvidSP and EBSCOhost, as well as evidence-based point of care tools.

You can search across other types of information such as images and multimedia or statistics (PDF) using a range of tools.

You can access the latest edition of The Grey Book August 2020 (revised February 2021) (PDF), edited  by Dr Teck Khong, for St George's Hospital guidelines.

Guidelines for the Management of Common Medical Emergencies and for the Use of Antimicrobial Drugs or The Grey Book, was first published and edited by Professor Joe Collier in August 1979. It is probably the oldest established set of such guidelines in the UK.

Accessing material not in our collections

If you have checked Hunter and our A-Z journals list and haven’t been able to find the book or journal that you are looking for, you may be able to source the item yourself from another library.

You can also request the item from another library using our interlibrary loans service.

If you think it is a book or a journal that we should have in the library, you are welcome to suggest a book or suggest a journal or e-resource for us to purchase.
