Library staff are happy to assist with your information enquiries and library use.  We offer advice on the use of library resources, finding quality information on the internet and can provide literature searching support.

Both current and new Homerton staff members, doctors and medical, nursing and midwifery students on placement are welcome to join the library by completing our  registration form, selecting Newcomb Library at Homerton Healthcare.
