The BCOM library provides an accessible and supportive learning environment.
We have more than 4,500 books on a wide range of medical and health sciences topics, such as anatomy, physiology, osteopathy, manual therapies, sports science, nutrition, statistics and ethics.
From books to journals to anatomical models to flashcards, our students can utilise a wide range of high-quality scientific resources. This includes online access to Plymouth University’s library catalogues and e-learning tools (our partner university).
We also provide rapid access to inter-library loan articles through collaboration with other osteopathic and health sector libraries in London.
Students are given essential library skills support (e.g. referencing, effective database searching) and study skills support (e.g. essay writing).
BCOM Library is open to members of the public and BCOM alumni. If you would like to arrange a visit or for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7443 9910.
