Library facilities and layout
Members and Associates of the Faculty of Homeopathy and Affiliate Members of the library are welcome to visit for browsing, borrowing or study purposes without an appointment.

Books are arranged alphabetically by author within large classes, e.g. materia medica, 615.1. Journals are arranged alphabetically by title on the shelves, with the most recent issue of a journal on display on entering the library. Audio tapes are stored on the left on entering the library and also to the left of the main window. One of the computers in the library is for library users. This has Internet access, computerised repertories, Microsoft Office and access to databases on homeopathy and complementary medicine.
