South Australian hospital libraries 1956-1980: an incomplete history
This review of the early history of South Australia’s hospital libraries
describes the social, educational and administrative factors that
produced an unprecedented growth in the number and role of
libraries in the state’s public hospitals between 1956 and 1980. It also
identifies some of the individuals who played a leading part in the
development of hospital libraries during this period.
