About NoW

Welcome to NoW

NoW is a newly merged consortium of NHS libraries across the North West of England.

All employees, learners on placement and volunteers at member NHS Trusts are eligible to join NoW as full members. Some Trusts also allow borrowing rights for external members, and these have more limited borrowing allowances. You can see more information about eligibility in our terms and conditions.

The NoW consortium will continue to grow. We have a full list of current NoW libraries on our website:

If you have any questions about NoW, please contact your ‘home’ library in the first instance.
