NHS Wales e-library

The NHS Wales e-Library for health provides access to e-journals, e-books, databases, medicines information, guidelines, evidence summaries, e-Learning and a range of other e-resources.

Access the e-Library full text resources at: https://elh.nhs.wales

If you are using a device which is connected to the NHS Wales network, there should be no need to log in to view full text resources.

If you are accessing the e-Library from outside the NHS Wales network, you will need to log in to view full text resources using an OpenAthens username and password.

You will be able to use your NHS Wales email address and network (Nadex) password as your OpenAthens username and password. If you do not have an NHS Wales email address, you can self register for an OpenAthens account: https://register.openathens.net/wales.nhs.uk/register

In addition you will also need to be registered with your hospital library with a library barcode number and password to view full text journal articles and e-books held in the e-Library and displayed in NHS Wales LibrarySearch (online catalogue). 


Contact your local library for a library barcode and password or if you need help with using the e-resources. If you experience technical difficulties accessing any of the e-resources or would like to suggest additional resources, please contact the e-Library Team
