Books of the Month
We are very excited to have won third prize in the Sally Hernando Innovations Awards for our submission, Understanding the person: insights into the patient experience.

Key to this innovation is that books are not shelved separately but integrated into the main book stock enabling library users to encounter the breadth of the library collection in one place.
In celebration of our award, our hightlighted books this month are:
