Services for Region Västerbotten

Staff at Region Västerbotten can turn to the Medical Library to get help with their databases and journals, to participate in courses and to borrow printed books on site or to make interlibrary book and article loans. By visiting the library, you also gain access to the library’s databases and journals.

Databases and journals

Region Västerbotten subscribes to databases and journals that you reach via the intranet Linda. If you need help using these resources, you are welcome to contact the Medical Library. You can gain access to databases and journals that the University subscribes to when you visit the library. 

Courses and tutoring

Do you need to excel your database search skills, keep up-to-date with new research findings, and become better at choosing suitable search words or writing references? The library offers group courses and individual tutoring. 

Workshops and lectures

Resource requests, interlibrary loans and ordering article copies 

We welcome requests for purchases of new literature in your field. Books that we cannot purchase and articles from journals that we do not subscribe to, we can often order from other libraries, in the form of interlibrary loans. The fee for interlibrary loans are charged to the clinic.
