Keyll Darree Winter Promotion
"Using the specialist knowledge of our users to inform and build our collection"
As part of our Winter promotion we are purchasing user recommended health and social care books up to the value of £100 with maximum of three requests per user. All we ask in return is that you tell us why this book would be beneficial for the library, and provide a review if we choose to purchase it.
To request today, fill out a Book Request form either in the library or online.
Cooill Darree is an informal group working room in the main library – it offers an area to practice presentations, host discussions, and encourage collaborative working in a bright and airy environment with a 65” touch screen, comfortable seating, and adjustable table.
The library service aims to provide quality resources to support the information needs of staff, primarily within the Department of Health and Social Care, supporting evidence-based decision making in clinical practice to enhance patient care, education and continuing professional development, research and life-long learning.
The library has however, extended its access policy to provide a service to anyone on the island who has a legitimate need to find and use health and social care information, including island charities, self-help groups and the private sector. In some circumstances, this may not always constitute access to the full range of library and information services, but walk-in use of print resources for reference are always offered to any individual who may need to use the service.
In addition, as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting extended opening hours the library has 24 hour access 7 days a week available for DHSC staff or affiliate partners via a proximity card. Please contact the library to see if you are eligible.
The library has self-issue facilities which allow for faster and more efficient borrowing and returning of books, so you won't have to wait in queues at the desk. The self-issue facilities enables users to borrow and return material whenever the building is open.
