Library Bulletin

Each month members receive the Library monthly bulletin which contains the latest reports, journal articles and web links relevant to the Health profession. Emphasis is placed on health management, executive leadership and professional development as well as facilities and infrastructure planning and development. Global Health reform and policy developments are also included. The Bulletins are available on the ACHSM website.

 

Research

The library can research Health topics and compile up-to-date references on required topics. We can also assist you in preparing a presentation, researching for a journal article or a book. The library can undertake this research for you. The first 2 hours are free, thereafter a charge of $50/hour applies.

 

The library has an extensive network on contacts with other Health libraries nationally and has access to their collections.
