Below are links to the major databases for public health - and some help with using them.
This guide is to assist you with the use of the Library's resources for public health, and to provide a selection of links to web sites which may be useful to those practising or studying in the field. Additional resources are available from the University's Discipline of Public Health .
The Quick links on the left will take you to the some of the most important databases for public health - to see the full range available to you, click on the Databases tab in the toolbar.
The Library A to Z will allow you to find all sorts of general library information, from hours of opening, to borrowing rules, and copying and printing costs.
Don't worry if you missed out on a Library tour in Orientation Week. Throughout the academic year, 30 minute tours are offered every Friday @12:00 for staff, students and members of the public - meet just inside the entrance to the library.
Another option is to download a self guided video tour (6MB mp4 for mobile devices) onto your ipad, iphone, or computer.
