WHSL sends out electronic lists of new acquisitions (books, journals and databases) periodically throughout the year. If you would like to be added to this electronic list, please send an e-mail to Mr Tobias Singleton. New print books are displayed in the display cabinets next to the reception desk and may be borrowed after the display period has ended. See " How to reserve a non-overnight book" for instructions on placing a hold on the new book you want to borrow.

In practice, very few print books are bought at WHSL. In 2014, the Library has been allocated no funds for print books. Most of WHSL's book acquisitions are therefore electronic and aimed at the undergraduate population. Some postgraduate clinical medicine textbooks are available full text via services such as Clinical Key.
