Library Membership

Am I eligible to join the Library and Knowledge Service? 
Please view the Membership Entitlement Table to see which services you are entitled to in the documents at the bottom of the page.

How do I join the Library and Knowledge Service?
Please complete a Library Membership form in the documents below or email wuth.lks@nhs.net

Do I need a Library Card?

If you have a WUTH ID card this will act as your library card. When you have had an account setup the team will apply a barcode to the back of your staff card. This will allow you to use the self service machine to check out and return items.

Your WUTH ID card will also act as your 24/7 access card and can be scanned on the library main door. 

If you are a WCHCT staff or student please speak to a member of staff (between 09:00-17:00 Monday-Friday) to organise library access outside staffed hours. We will provide you with a separate WUTH Library card. 

What if I work for another NHS Trust in Cheshire and Merseyside?
If you are employed by another NHS Trust in the Cheshire and Merseyside region you may be eligible for access to additional services through the Cheshire and Merseyside Healthcare Libraries Access Agreement, which can be seen in the documents at the bottom of the page. Please contact us for further details.
