UHBW Library and Information Services: Home

Welcome to UHBW Library and Information Services


The Library has officially reopened! 

UHBW Libraries are once again open to staff from BRI, WSM and SBCH sites, with the safety measures put in place:

Out of hours access to the Bristol based Library is currently on hold. Out of hours access at Weston is however available, as long as you have your WSM staff badge.

Surgical masks must be worn at all times, including when working on PCs.

At Bristol, PCs must be booked in advance by telephone (ext. 20105) or email, or at the Bristol-based Library front desk. You can book a PC for up to four hours per day.

No booking currently required for WSM PCs.  

Welcome to University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Library and Information Service. We are comprised of two libraries, based in Weston-super-mare and Bristol. We provide you with the latest evidence and training to support your knowledge and information needs. We offer evidence searches, journal article provision, and much more. Got any questions? Email us for more information.
