Accessing Print Materials:

Please note that you will need your HSE staff card or student card if on a placement as part of this process. If you prefer to self-register you can do so here. Going forward, users seeking to renew/register for an OpenAthens account will need a library account as this and OpenAthens are linked.

You can search our library catalogue from here. After performing a search, you can use the filter to limit the search to Naas General Hospital Library.
