The Sunshine Coast Health Institute (SCHI) Library supports the research and information needs of all Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service staff and affiliated health professionals throughout the Sunshine Coast.
We provide services to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and SCHI, Nambour General Hospital, Caloundra Hospital, Gympie Hospital, Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital and a comprehensive range of sub-acute, ambulatory and extended care, community health, mental health and oral health services, and aged care services at the Glenbrook Residential Aged Care Facility.
Our purpose is to support all programs with particular emphasis on patient and public health care. This is done through the delivery of evidence-based information and knowledge resources and services, specifically for clinical decision-support, public health programs, education and training, health technology assessment, research, policy, management and administration.
Our services fall into three broad areas: Collections Management and Access, Reference and Research, and Health Information Education and Training.
Services are not provided to the general public.
