Literature search service

The library offers a search service to help you find the literature you need to answer your patient care, service improvement and clinical research questions.

We also offer a guided search service, so you can sit with the librarian and explore your query.

If your search is urgent and  relates directly to patient care, please call the library to discuss on 5202 2935.
