NHSG Libraries is located within the e-health directorate and has a key role for the delivery of Informatics within Grampian. Across Grampian there are three (3) main staffed libraries delivering a wide range of services. They are located at:
The libraries serve broadly defined, overlapping populations. All libraries recognise a responsibility to provide services on a Grampian-wide basis. In addition to these local services, the wider electronic resources of The Knowledge Network are available to all NHSG staff.
A number of core services are common to all the NHS-managed services. These services include interlibrary loans, reader registration and lending services, password allocation, literature search and enquiry services, outreach/promotion activities, electronic resources and end-user training.
Partner libraries include University of Aberdeen Libraries, The Robert Gordon University Libraries and the Highland Health Sciences Library, Inverness.
The e-Health directorate also has responsibility for NHS Grampian Archives, which are based at the Special Collections Centre in the Sir Duncan Rice Library at the University of Aberdeen.
