Welcome to the CICM via ANZCA library's WorldCat Discovery service. The service allows users to access the entire ANZCA library collection through a single Google-like search interface. This includes article-level access to over 900+ full-text medical journals, and title-level access to 9000+ medical e-books.
How to access e-resources

The discovery service matches on exact spelling.
- Words with alternate spellings should be searched using both spellings:
- Alternatively, wildcards and truncation can be used:
Titles containing commonly used words should be restricted to title matching.

- Cant find it? Try Worldwide!
Whilst the vast majority of ANZCA’s library resources show as held, there are some resources that can only be accessed by expanding your search to Libraries Worldwide.
Simply click on the Libraries Worldwide facet in the left sidebar or select the Do you want to expand your search to libraries worldwide? link.
Note: If already within the discovery layer, you will also have the option of just searching against the Title
The discovery service collapses all the different editions and formats (print and e-book) into a grouped or representative record.
Be default, the record displayed is usually for the most recently held item.
Different (older) editions and print holdings can be accessed in several ways:
After you perform a search in WorldCat Discovery, items in your search results will include icons for users to quickly add records to a list, email a record or a list of records, copy a record link, or export a citation. The icons are available from the brief results, the action panel, and on the detailed record (mobile view).
- Format a citation: Generate and copy a styled citation.
- Export a citation: Cite the record using EndNote, RefWorks or RIS format.
- Email record: Choose Email to share a single record with up to five (5) email recipients.
- Note: You also have the option to add a record to a list and email the list to up to five recipients at the end of your session using My Items or My Personal List (see details below).
- Share record link: Opens a pop-up window with the permalink displayed. Copy and share the link.
- Save record: Adds the record to the My Items list - which can then be emailed to yourself, exported as citations or shared with others (see details below).
- Note: Records added to a list are stored temporarily for the session until the session times out.
My Items and My Personal Lists
Users can save up to 100 records in a list by clicking on the Save icon that appears next to the item. When users reach the limit, the interface displays text as a warning message: "Your list is full. Please remove records from your list or clear your list to add more records." Users can close the message and continue to search; However, they will not be able to add another record to the list until one or more records are removed.
Users can remove one record at a time by using the icon beside each record. Users can delete all records in the list by clicking Select All, then clicking the Delete icon.
To create and save a personal list:
Email item(s) from My Items or My Personal Lists:
Cite multiple items from My Items or My Personal Lists:
To move items from My Personal Lists or My Items to a Personal List:
