Exeter Health Library and DPT Library use the SWIMS library catalogue.
SWIMS is a library catalogue that is shared by all NHS libraries across the South and
West of England. SWIMS enables you to search for books and other items held at your
local NHS library, see items held by other NHS libraries in the region, and to view and
renew your loans online. If you would like to borrow an item not held by your library then
please contact a member of your local library team.
