BOPDHB Library

Our library service includes:

  • Print and ebook collections - including borrowing

Our library services do not support external study. Please refer to your tertiary library.

Most library services are available to health providers who have a funding relationship with the BOPDHB. If you wish to access our library services you will need to become a registered user and provide evidence of your association/employment to your primary or community health provider.
