Please be assured that your membership of The Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland is still valid and your home library will automatically change to the Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland at QUB Medical Biology Centre (Lisburn Road, Belfast) if Knockbracken was your home library.  If you were attached to another Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland branch due to your work location, that will remain unchanged.
