Services for hospital staff

We support staff at the Mater Hospital & Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. Members can borrow items from the collection, get research assistance, request help with literature searches and speak with expert librarians about finding information.

Let our team of Librarians search the databases for you. Our searches provide you with clinical evidence to inform specific patient cases, organisational changes and update clinical guidelines.
Request document
Use our free Document Delivery service for an item not available through the Library or the Clinical Knowledge Network (CKN)

Online resources

Clinical Knowledge Network (CKN) is an online collection of key health databases, books and journals. It is available to all QLD Health staff.  See our CKN guide.

A selection of databases, eBooks and eJournals can be accessed on Library computers.

Referencing

Our referencing guides will help you format your reference list in styles such as APA, Vancouver and AMA.

EndNote software stores and manages references from databases, Google Scholar and more. Use Endnote to quickly create a reference list. Contact your librarian for EndNote help and training.

Training

We offer customised training sessions in the Library or your department. We can provide in-service training or individual consultations.

First-time training attendees should email training@library.uq.edu.au to register.  In the email include your Library membership username (e.g. emjsmith) and the date and time of the training session. We’ll email to confirm within 2 business days.  After registering, book training sessions directly via the training links.
