Forms

East and South Metropolitan Health Services staff use the forms website to:

  • Register on the site as a client and join the Library (create your account) - use your WA Health email address and a password you choose (important to pick one you will remember)
  • Sign in (to make all types of service requests and check on progress - for journal articles, loans, literature searches, training and general queries)  
  • Update your details for an existing account
  • Reset your password  (Note - this is to reset your forms site password, not your network password - these are two different passwords.  The password you set on the Library's forms site will stay the same unless you choose to change it.  You will be prompted to change your network password at intervals by Health IT.)

For urgent requests, please phone as well as submitting the form to ensure the librarians are able to respond as required.  Requests to support clinical care are given priority over all other requests.

Note:  Requests for support for external study purposes must have EMHS / SMHS relevance and support will be more limited.  Give sufficient notice of your request - urgent deadlines are not generally accepted when the request is for assignment purposes.

Consider using your University Library's services and resources.  If the course requires you to conduct searches yourself, seek training from your university or use their training guides.
The following online learning programs are useful.  Research Education and Training Program Literature Searching and Management;  National Library of Medicine PubMed training;  the University of Otago has guides on searching Ovid databases.  Introduction to Ovid Emcare.
