The Girdlestone Memorial Library at the NOC is now part of the Bodleian and work is progressing well to improve the library’s facilities for MSD and NHS students and staff. Bodleian reader PCs and new NHS PCs have been installed for all library users and a MSD IT medical student terminal is also now available. Printing/scanning facilities are in place and the NOC will be joining the Bodleian PCAS printing and scanning service over the summer vacation. We are also working to install Bodleian WiFi and a laptop is now available for loan.
All of the books in the library are now on SOLO (select “Health Care Libraries-Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre”) and can be borrowed using University or Bodleian cards. New shelving has been installed and we’ll be updating the collection with new books and updated editions over the coming weeks.
The library is located beside the lecture theatre on the first floor in the main building of the NOC and our new library staff, Lucinda and Isabella, look forward to meeting you!
