PHRC classification scheme
You may also find the PHRC classification scheme document (PDF 29KB) very useful for ascertaining the breadth of topics that the resource centre covers.
Typing 'Ctrl' and 'F' on your keyboard will bring up the FIND function to allow you to search the document.
Models and equipment
Models and equipment can be borrowed for up to 2 weeks depending on availability.

PHRC staff can help advise on the models that can help you to get your health message across and recommend alternatives if your chosen model is not available when you require it.
It is advised that you book the models you require well in advance to avoid disappointment as they are very popular.
For the most up to date information about our models, please go to the
library catalogue and search for 'models' and the topic you are interested in. This will bring up all the models we have available on that topic.
