Health libraries and the librarians who staff them aim to facilitate informed decision making in health care, research, education and administration. Effective use of libraries can contribute to the knowledge and efficiency of professionals working in hospitals and other organisations. The following links provide access to NSW Health Library portals.

Many health libraries are not public libraries and may only be open to employees who work in that hospital or Local Health District. They cannot be approached directly to supply the public with articles, even if you know that they hold the journal required.
