The Epilepsy Foundation Library collection is a source of diverse information supporting a wide range of clients, including people with epilepsy, carers, children, medical and health professionals and the wider public with an interest in epilepsy.

The collection comprises more than 2,600 books, audio visual materials, complete holdings of the major epilepsy-related journals plus extensive current information files containing articles on many subjects relating to both the study of epilepsy and living with epilepsy.

The librarian assists with all requests for information, including literature searches, whether made in person or by telephone, letter, email or website. The library has access to a wide range of journal articles through other libraries and via membership of the inter-library cooperative, Gratisnet.  Some resources are available in a range of languages.

The librarian can also assist with access to aids and equipment and can provide advice to support people to live independently and safely, as well as assisting with access to epilepsy management plans, seizure diaries and other useful, practical materials.

All clients, members of the public, research workers, students and medical professionals are welcome to visit the library to make use of its facilities. However, borrowing of materials is restricted to Epilepsy Foundation members and by arrangement with medical and other professionals.

Opening hours

9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

If you are making a trip for special information it is best to ring first to check that the librarian will be there.
