The WCHN library offers a full range of services and resources to meet the needs of all staff, as well as students on placement. Professional library staff can assist with your information requirements.
Training is available for using the library catalogue, effectively searching citation databases, accessing journals, or using our mobile apps such as UpToDate. If you have commenced study or a professional development course we can help with information searching.
The library area is on the ground floor of the Michell Building. Enter via the basement level door, and go up one level. We have kitchen facilities - tea, coffee, fridge and microwave. Computers and printers are available for staff use plus a bookable meeting room with whiteboard, laptop and data projector. The library space is accessible at all times with a security issued WCHN ID card.
