The library comes to you

A new online library service for all Northern Health staff and students has been launched, bringing the library to staff regardless of where they are located.

The service provides access to a range of evidence-based resources such as medical literature, databases, education tools, eJournals, access to books and eBooks and point of care decision support tools such as UpToDate.

The eLibrary can be used to submit requests for article sourcing by library staff or access expert search capabilities by requesting a literature search.

“Both of these valued services help Northern Health staff and students stay up to date with the latest evidence-based thinking and research, which supports excellent patient care and safety,” said Natasha Bradley, Library Manager.

The service can be accessed via the Library intranet page – the main image activates the eLibrary site. For those working remotely, click here for access. Please note, you will need to be a library member to access library resources from home. Join here.

The site works on desktops, tablets, computers and smartphones.

Staff and students can access quality resources to support their day to day work with patients or to conduct their own resource using reliable sources. Finally, staff and students can explore specialty topics like COVID-19, Nursing and Midwifery and HRO – Quality and Safety via the new eLibrary. Anyone interested in developing content for a specialty area should contact Natasha directly.

“I’m delighted to launch this enhanced online offering of library services and resources to staff and students. We are looking forward to expanding our online information and resources over the next few months. It’s an exciting time for the library.”

Watch this space for further improvements to eLibrary services and information search.
