With the relaxation of COVID rules, the SA Health Library Service has recommenced the provision of print books obtained via Interlibrary loan for SA Health staff.
Ways to submit a request...
1. Complete a blank request form (login with your SALUS username and click Create Request from the left-hand panel). ** A check of SALUS before submitting a request may show you may already have online full-text access
2. Look for the "Item not available...Request it!" text to the right of each record displayed when accessing any OVID Database to be taken to the Interlibrary Loan account login screen. Once you have accessed your account with your SALUS user name you are able to view a pre-populated request form which is ready to be submitted by clicking the blue “Request” button once you have checked the details are correct and you have selected a pickup location if requesting a book or added any special instructions
3. Look for the green “Unavailable through SALUS …. Request it!" Button when searching for journal articles. Tip: You may need to click on the article title to go to a more detailed record for the article to see the green ‘request' it button
The SA Health Library Service wherever possible attempts to reduce any costs incurred in obtaining requested materials with there being no charge to individual SA Health staff or SA Health Departments/Units for the provision of articles/print books via the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Service. While the SA Health Library Service does cover all Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery costs any requests that may require higher than normal charges will be referred back to the requester to confirm the requirement for the item warrants the higher charges.
