Library Collection
The MUH Library is located on the first floor of the Mansion House building. Its primary role is to support clinical practice, as well as the learning, research and teaching needs of hospital staff and students on placement. We have a collection of over 2.500 books and print subscriptions to some of the core health science journals. We are currently transitioning from print to predominantly electronic journal access.

Our stock covers all of the health sciences as well as health services, social sciences and management. Particular areas of strength are medicine, surgery, nursing and clinical therapies.
