SA Health Library Service Response to COVID-19

SA Health Library Service Changes due to COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been necessary for the SA Health Library Service to make some changes; however, what will not change is your online access to all library resources and information via the SALUS library site.

 

The SA Health Library Service will also continue to:

  • Provide 24/7 online access to critical resources and information via the SALUS website from any device with an internet connection
  • Assist with literature search requests and reference enquiries
  • Process interlibrary loans (including urgent requests)
  • Assist with technical issues (e.g. library username and password issues, and resource accessing problems)
  • Provide remote training and assistance with databases, journal access and EndNote
  • Apart from the RAH Library and Glenside Library, all sites remain open and staffed. The RAH and Glenside library teams will work to assist patrons remotely

 

Changes to the Library Service will maintain a safe working environment for everyone, and include:

  • All print and hard-copy loans will cease – this includes the borrowing of books and resources from all SA Health Libraries, interlibrary loan books and hard-copy journal articles. Urgent requests for articles/items relating to patient care are exempt (please contact the library service)
  • No face-to-face meetings or training; library staff can provide assistance over the phone, via Zoom or email
  • The RAH site library temporarily closed on Friday March 27th
    • The closure of the RAH site will not compromise access to critical information or to qualified library staff; the RAH library team will work off-site and will continue to provide strong support to library patrons
  • Glenside Library space is also closed. Staff continue to provide services remotely
  • TQEH library computer/study room is closed

The Library team remains dedicated to support all SA Health staff through this challenging time.

For more information or to ask any questions, please contact the SA Health Library Service at health.salus@sa.gov.au or via our online chat service.

Information current as of 31/03/2020
