Literature searching: OVERVIEW

This guide has been designed to help anaesthetists conduct their own literature searches on specific topics, using specialised resources - including those available through the ANZCA library.

Spotlight

Australasian Anaesthesia (Blue Book) now searchable

Ever tried looking for that key article from a copy of the ‘Blue Book’?  You can now search each edition of Australasian Anaesthesia from 2003 through the Informit Health Collection, which can be accessed through the Library Databases page.

Each article has been indexed to include author details, abstracts, and even subject/keywords.  PDF and flip-book versions of the ‘Blue Book’ can be viewed from the College Publications webpage.
