All CLIN Libraries provide a Literature Search Service to support evidence-based patient care, work-related research, education and professional development.
This service is available to all employees of South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) and affiliated researchers. This service is provided at no cost.
If you are undertaking an undergraduate or postgraduate course/study please make an appointment with your local CLIN Librarian, who will support you with Library Education sessions and/or individualised search assistance. We do not complete your assignment search for you.
Search requests may take up to 10 business days to complete depending on the complexity of the search. Priority is given to searches for direct patient care. We may need to negotiate your "date required by" based on other search requests received or forward your request to another CLIN Librarian to meet your deadline.
Requests can be submitted in person by completing a form at your local CLIN Library or by completing the Literature Search Request Form below.
We will create a search strategy or strategies based on the information provided to us. Search citation results are emailed as an MS Word document or an EndNote Library. Results may be also saved to a flash drive supplied by you. Key search terms and/or database search strategies will be emailed with the search citation results.
Full text journal articles may be requested through your CLIN Library's Document Delivery Service, using the Journal Article Request Form or requested directly from some databases.
EndNote helps you collect and store all the references that you have found from different sources. You can use your EndNote library to create bibliographies in MS Word documents and reformat them into your chosen referencing style.
The CLIN Libraries offer research support to staff and students. Library involvement at the initial stage of your project is critical and will contribute to the quality of your research. Contact us to make an appointment.
If you are completing a search for a Systematic Review or Scoping Review, we provide support in the form of research consultations.
Library Staff can assist you with literature search assistance if you require assignment help or prefer to do your own searching.
