Membership & Borrowing

Yes. Contact the SCHI Library and talk to one of our helpful staff,  and they will arrange for you to be notified when the item is available.

Of course! The Queensland Health libraries are all part of the same network, so if you’re a library member we can access resources from any of them. To request a book from any of our libraries you can either contact us or you can request the book online.

All SCHHS staff who are members of the library can use our Document Delivery service (also known as Interlibrary Loans) to obtain journal articles or books that the library doesn’t have. This service is for obtaining resources for work related purposes only.

You can access your library account via the library catalogue. The log in function is located at the top right hand side of the page. From here you can check what items you have checked out and renew your loans. For any problems logging in to your library account, Ask Us.

Of course! The SCHI Library offers a full range of services to SCHHS staff who work in other areas, including borrowing, training, access to electronic resources and research assistance. To find out more,  Ask Us.
