The list below gives the contact details for libraries requesting inter-library loans from the EDEN network of healthcare libraries in the East of England. 

Please note that holdings for the East Anglian Children’s Hospices EACH can be found using their library catalogue.

After checking EDEN locations, East of England libraries may contact libraries in other networks, in the following order:

1) PANDDA Journals   Library contact details

3) LENDS Journals (choose ULS) Books (choose RDD) Library contact details / LAWMUNION
4) MIDS Journals   Library contact details / LAWMUNION

Important information about using the scheme:

Please see the national guidelines, and refer to local protocols for supplementary information

Please state clearly when requesting from another network which network you belong to, and your network code within that network.

Please treat LENDS and MIDS as separate networks, even though they share a catalogue. For those outside LENDS and MIDS, please ignore the ‘Request publication’ option on the Lawmunion catalogue.

For e-journals which are part of large bundles, e.g. ClinicalKey or Wiley Nursing and Medicine collection, please approach libraries in your own network first. 

Book loaning is at the discretion of the loaning library

If you have any problems when using the scheme, or have any suggestions for improvements, please contact your regional lead:
