Introducing... LibGuides



We are excited to launch our new online guides platform this month. Libguides will provide guides, tutorials and videos to support all staff in need of library and information support. Current guides include

· Resources for medical, nursing, HSCP and management staff

· Writing for publication

· Searching for evidence

· How to find a journal or database

We have just started to create these guides and we are adding to them frequently so don’t forget to check back regularly and tell us what you think.

The guides are freely accessible at this address: https://svhg.libguides.com or from our website homepage.

NEW E-Resource links



We have made the following changes in how we provide access to our E-Journals and Databases


1) E-Journals are now accessible on a new platform, called Publication Finder. The link to this is in the Pink E-Journals and Databases block on the top left of your screen (as before)

2) Database links are now available on a separate platform, Libguides A-Z Databases, and the link to this is also in the Pink E-Journals and Databases block on the top left of your screen.

3) Remote access is still available using OpenAthens. Click on any resource link (in Publication Finder or A-Z Databases) when not in the hospital and you will be prompted for your OpenAthens username and password. You will only be asked for this once.


OpenAthens application forms are available in the Blue Library Forms block. Guides and help are available in the Yellow block. Contact the libraries for further assistance

Welcome to St Vincent’s Healthcare Group Library website

We provide library and information services to the staff of St. Vincent’s Healthcare Group, as well as to students from University College Dublin on placement in any of the Group’s hospitals. There are two library sites – one based in St. Vincent’s University Hospital, and one located in St. Michael’s Hospital. We support the information needs and therefore the clinical practice, professional education and research activities, of all staff of St. Vincent's Healthcare Group.

Use this website to:

  • Search our catalogue of books - renew, reserve etc.
  • Access our electronic resources (e-journals and databases) from within the Hospitals and remotely.
  • Download forms - borrower registration, OpenAthens registration, article request.
  • View our opening hours, our publications, and much more.
  • Find out about upcoming library training, presentations and events.
