  • Borrowing books 

You are able to browse the library catalogue www.base-library.nhs.uk for items held at Barberry Library and you can visit to collect and check-out these items yourself.  Unfortunately we aren’t able to fulfil holds on items from other libraries in BASE or to provide postal loans.  Full instructions on how to check-out an item are available on the library counter.

If you want to return books to either library at BSMHFT, you can use the drop-boxes located outside the library door or you can return the items via the internal post, packing items in padded envelopes if possible.

If you need to register for the library service, you can do this online here – we will confirm your registration and library card number by email before posting this to you at your workplace address.

  • Other services

All other services such as article requests, literature search help or mediated literature searches are still available via the links on the website.

You can browse the full collection of print and e-books via the search box on our homepage: https://www.library.bsmhft.nhs.uk/

The library team will endeavour to respond to requests left via voicemail between 9am & 5pm, Monday to Friday.
