Library Mobile App

The new library mobile app is the mobile gateway to your library.

With this app you can keep track of your reservations and the items you have on loan. Which you can then renew straight from the app.

The app also acts as a digital library card. No more need for carrying another piece of plastic. If you are borrowing a book, or need your library membership number, just open the app instead.

When you first open the app you will need to follow a few steps before using it:

  • You will be asked to search for your organisation. You will need to look for "RMH Health Sciences Library"
  • Accept the user agreement
  • You will need to log into the App with your library membership number and password.
  • You will then be asked which profile you use. Here choose your hospital (Mental Health Staff select Royal Melbourne Hospital).

The app will now be all set up for you to use.
