Medicine: Books

Finding books

The University Library has an extensive collection of printed books relevant to members of the School of Medicine. These are housed in the Main Library and the Stopford Library.

The main collection of books on Medicine, along with those for other health related subjects such as dentistry, nursing and pharmacy, is located largely on the second floor (blue 2) in the Main Library.

Books for pre-clinical medical students are also located in the Stopford Library on the third floor of the Medical School (Stopford Building).

Locating books on the shelves

image of a bookshelfThe Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme (Dewey for short) to arrange books and other resources on the shelves so you can locate them easily. We're going to show you how to use Dewey to find a book at any Library site.

How to find and access theses?

Hard copy PhD theses before 2009 produced at The University of Manchester are held at the Joule Library.

You can search Library Search for a thesis, make a note of the shelfmark (eg Th 16574), bring the number to the issue counter and we will retrieve it for you. Please note that they are reference only and cannot be removed from the Library.

We do not hold Masters or undergraduate theses.

Below is a link to our dedicated thesis support page.

Doctoral/Research Theses

Electronic versions of many open-access University of Manchester research theses, submitted from the 2010 session onwards, are available on Pure, the University of Manchester’s internal repository.

Inter-Library Loans service

The University of Manchester Library is one of the largest subscribers to e-journals and databases in the UK but we don’t have access to everything.

If you find that we don’t hold a book, report, journal article or conference paper that you need, you can use our Inter-Library Loans service.

Using Google Books

It is worthwhile carrying out a search on Google Books to see if a book is available to view online.

If you have a reading list for your course and the books are in use by other students, you can check to see if it has been fully or partially digitised by Google.
