Request an article or book from us

Worcestershire Health Libraries provide a quick and efficient service and will aim to process any new requests for information within 24 hours. If you need the material urgently, please let us know and we can usually obtain your request within a few hours.

We have a wide range of resources available to us and can obtain most articles requested. If an article is held in print (at any of our libraries) or in electronic format we can scan and email the article to you free of charge. However, we can also print/photocopy the article if you prefer. The printing/photocopying charges are set out below.

If the title is not held within Worcestershire, we can use external libraries to provide us with the article; charges can vary but we will always go for the cheapest option first and, unless you have stated you are happy to pay the charges, we will always contact you before ordering chargeable items.
