Yes. You can do this one of two ways. Either contact your nearest Health Library and talk to one of our helpful staff, or you can place the hold yourself using your library account. Find the book on the library catalogue and click on ‘Place Hold’. Enter your library card number as your login and your surname with a capital letter (e.g. Jones) as your password and click ‘Log In’. Choose a pick up location and click ‘Place Hold’. The library will then contact you when a copy of this book is available for you to borrow.

Of course! The 5 health libraries in the NT are all part of the same network, so if you’re a library member you can access services and resources from any of them. To request a book from any of our libraries you can either contact us or you can request the book online using your library account. Find the book on the library catalogue and click on ‘Place Hold’. Enter your library card number as your login and your surname with a capital letter (e.g. Jones) as your password and click ‘Log In’. Choose a pick up location and click ‘Place Hold’. The library will then contact you when a copy of this book is available for you to borrow.

There are a number of mobile resources available to library members. To view all mobile resources, including instructions on how to access them on your mobile device, see our Mobile Apps page.

To request a book or journal article that is not held by the Health Library, you will need to either contact your educational institution (i.e. your university library) or use the Copies Direct Service from the National Library of Australia.

You can access your library account via the library catalogue. Sign in using your library card number as your login and your surname with a capital letter (e.g. Jones) as your password and click ‘Log In’. From here you can check what items you have checked out, what requests / holds you have waiting, change your password or even see your reading history.

Get it! DoH is a service that provides access to online journals and improves linking between the e-journal collection and databases subscribed to by the library. The Get it! DoH button appears when browsing the list of electronic journals as well as in the search results in databases such as Medline. If you click on the button, it will either take you to the individual article or, if that's not possible, to the e-journal that you want to look at.

You will be issued with a unique username and password when you register as a member of the Health Library. If you did not receive your password or you've lost it, please contact us.
