Services for Clinical Partners

Print and Multimedia Collection

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) supports learning with a collection of books and print journals, including special collections for examination review guides, laboratory standards, and government documents. An extensive multimedia collection is also available. Multimedia viewing facilities are provided and advance bookings may be arranged.

Catalogue

Our catalogue facilitates searching our book and audiovisual collections, eBooks, Dry Lab collection, and print and electronic journal titles.

Electronic Journals

Full-text electronic journals (EBSCO, ScienceDirect, Wiley Online Library and others) and indexes (PubMed, CINAHL, ERIC) are accessible from the Journal Databases page on our website. Some titles are freely available, while others require authentication and are limited to staff with Michener network/Outlook accounts.

If you wish to use your professional development funds to purchase books, you are responsible for doing this yourself and then submitting an expense claim form along with a receipt to the Clinical Education Office. Contact LRC staff if you require information on pricing, current editions, etc.
