The Devon Partnership Trust Library Service now operates from Exeter Health Library.  The DPT collection concentrates mainly on psychiatry but provides a service to all Devon Partnership Trust staff. Services to Devon Partnership Trust staff include:

Staffed opening hours
Mon-Fri:  08.30 – 17.00

To join the library you will need to complete a registration form, either online, or you download a paper copy. Complete the form and if you download the paper copy, by return either by e-mail (to: mary.smith30@nhs.net or rde-tr.library@nhs.net), post or in person. You can request out-of-hours access to Exeter Health Library so that you can have 24 hour access to the library if desired.

Borrowing books
The library has a ‘self-service’ system so that books can be borrowed when Library staff are not available. There is a computerised catalogue, showing which books are held in the library.  For more information, see our Books page.

IT facilities
Full internet access is available in the Library and at various points throughout the Trust. You will need a username and password from the IT department. There are 19 PCs and a flatbed scanner available for general use in the Library. Printing is available via the MFD printer in the Library.  

Online resources
For more information on specific resources in psychiatry, please see our Mental Disorders Topic Guide.
