The Clinical Librarian Service provides expert assistance to staff and students of Royal Melbourne Hospital, Victorian Mental Health, Royal Women's Hospital, and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. We offer support in finding and using information.
It can be difficult to find the articles you need amongst the huge volume published each year. The clinical librarians can help.
We can carry out a high quality literature search to find the latest publications for staff. Use this form on the library website to request a search. Please provide as much information about your request as you can.
We offer one-on-one training or small group sessions on literature searching or how to use a database.
