WRHA Virtual Library: Order Sources

Checking Library Access

While searching databases, you can check if the WRHA Virtual Library has access to an item by verifying that the link displayed while you are signed in says "WRHA", as shown in this screenshot:

If it does not, you may need to fill out a request to borrow the item from another institution.

For help accessing items:

Phone: 204-789-3836

If you can't get access to a resource, request it using this form:

User Request Form

You will need to log in to your library account. Articles are usually filled within 1–3 working days; books will take longer. If your request is urgent for patient care, or if you require an alternate format for accessibility, please give us a call at 204-789-3836. You can also use this form to request items available from the University of Manitoba Libraries, including the previous hospital library collections.

If you need help requesting items, check out our screencast or get in touch with us. You can also view your pending requests by logging in and clicking the "Open Requests" option.
