For urgent requests, please phone as well as submitting the form to ensure the librarians are able to respond as required. Requests to support clinical care are given priority over all other requests.
Note: Requests for support for external study purposes must have EMHS / SMHS relevance and support will be more limited. Give sufficient notice of your request - urgent deadlines are not generally accepted when the request is for assignment purposes.
Consider using your University Library's services and resources. If the course requires you to conduct searches yourself, seek training from your university or use their training guides.
