About us

The Library is on the ground floor of the Guy Scadding Building on the corner of Dovehouse Street and Cale Street. Access to the building is by College ID card.

Eligible NHS trust staff must register with the library for a library access card. On your first visit you will not be able to enter after 17.30.

We offer:

  • a quiet reading room
  • 15 computers
  • network points and wireless access for Imperial staff and students with a College username and password

Books and journals

We specialise in cardiology and respiratory medicine.

Our collection also covers general medicine (including medical textbooks), nursing and professions allied to medicine.

Most new journals are available online but we also have some print journals, dating from 2004 onwards. The most recent issue and current year are in the main library.

Older journals are in the quiet reading room.

You can only return books during library opening hours.
