Register for a library catalogue account

When you have a library catalogue account you will be able to log in to the online library catalogue  to reserve/renew books and also use the self-issue kiosks at Chilton, Colindale and Porton libraries to borrow books.

You can also use this login to access the ebooks and audiobooks via Borrowbox.

How to register for an library catalogue account

You can register for a PHE Library catalogue account here (please use your PHE email address).

    • We recommend that you choose a fairly brief, memorable password as you will also use this password for the self-issue terminals at our libraries, where applicable.
    • There is a minimum limit of four characters for the password but there is no restriction on characters.

Forgotten your password?

If you already have an account, you can reset your password here
