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, help with literature searches and talk to experts about finding information. 

Your membership


Join UQ Library

Membership is free for staff at serviced hospitals. Membership expires each year in December. We will remind you to renew online by email.


As a hospital library member you can:

  • Borrow unlimited general items from any UQ library location
  • Visit our UQ library locations
  • Place a hold on an item to have it delivered to your campus library



Literature search
Let our team of Librarians search the databases for you. Our searches provide you with the best clinical evidence to inform specific patient cases, organisational changes and update clinical guidelines.
We offer customised training sessions in the Library or your department. We can provide in-service training or individual consultations.

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 UQ Library databases, eBooks and eJournals can be accessed on UQ Library computers.
