This guide provides updates about Library services and resources, and promotes selected resources.
A newly published book may be of interest for medical educators: The Intentional Mentor in Medicine: A Toolkit for Mentoring Doctors (TIMM)
TIMM is about mentoring doctors – what mentoring means and how to perform the role of mentor – and it teaches doctors how to assist junior medical colleagues with their ambitions, issues and concerns related to being a doctor in practice.
A flyer about the book is available here: www.intentional-mentor.com
The Library has kindly been donated a copy by one of the authors, which is now available for loan.
Users can log into the proxied version of Ovid Medline (via the ANZCA website as they typically do), and generate an access token to authenticate within the app.
See our dedicated OvidToday guide for further information including full access details.
[Apr 2017] The new BJA (British Journal of Anaesthesia) Journals app from Oxford University Press is now here. The app enables you to read your favourite anaesthesia journals, BJA and BJA Education, both online and offline on your iOS device.
See our dedicated BJA app guide for further information including full access details.
Building works in the Library have now been completed and the main library space has now reopened.
Library users will also be able to more easily locate and browse materials with a realignment of the library collection into a more linear configuration with improved signage. Library catalogue holdings for all print journal materials held have also been updated.
Need a quiet study space? Fellows and trainees are encouraged to use the Library (which has a study/discussion space for up to 5 people) and the Fellows Room (which has a discussion space for up to 7 people) whenever visiting the College in Melbourne.
Access to the College Wi-Fi service is also available.
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.
[May 2017] The library has completed updating the majority of its Library Guides with the new template, although content updates and format refinements will be ongoing. Your comments and feedback about the changes would be greatly appreciated: http://anzca.libsurveys.com/feedback.
Please Note: Some updates will result in changes to URLs/page names, and users are advised that bookmarks/saved links may need to be updated. Guides marked with an asterisk(*) have yet to be updated.
The ANZCA Library now provides online access to another high quality medical education resource. The Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME) is a bi-monthly publication that disseminates scholarship and promotes critical inquiry to inform and engage the graduate medical education community to improve the quality of graduate medical education. It is a peer-reviewed, editorially independent journal published by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Access the Journal of Graduate Medical Education through the ANZCA Library journal list: http://www.anzca.edu.au/resources/library/journals
[Dec 2016] A platform update has resulted in changed access URLs and created resultant intermittent access issues. Please ensure that you update your bookmarks for any Oxford journals.
Please report any issues encountered to email@example.com.
