Online access to the British National Formulary (BNF)


The British National Formulary (BNF), published by the British Medical Association and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, is a key reference work that provides extensive information on the prescription, monitor, supply and administration of medicines that are generally prescribed in the UK.

BNFRelevant to staff and students in the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing and the School of Veterinary Science, the Library is pleased to announce that the British National Formulary (BNF) is now available as an online resource, via MedicinesComplete, in addition to the print copies that are available at the University Library, the James Ireland Memorial Library, the James Herriot Library, and the Medical School Library. The online version of the BNF is updated monthly, as compared to the biannual update of the print edition, so the most up to date pharmacological information is now accessible from any location via wi-fi using your GUID.

As with all electronic resources provided by the University of Glasgow Library, the BNF Online should be accessed through the University of Glasgow Library Website to ensure that you are provided with all the services the Library has subscribed to for that particular resource. First, search for the resource by title from the main search box, or choose from the A-Z list of Databases. When you have located the resource, click on the link to the online resource and you’ll be asked for your GUID, which should then give you full access. If you experience any problems accessing electronic resources on the Library Website, please email Library eResources.

If you’d like to know more about accessing eResources in general, please have a look at the Library’s guide to accessing eResources.
