Library Catalogue

Users who have remote access to Taranaki DHB's internal systems will also have access to our internal Library Catalogue. Links to the catalogue are on the library’s intranet homepage, and also on the intranet navigation bar.

Interlibrary Loan

This library is a member of the HealthLib Network which offers free interloan services from most libraries in the health field in New Zealand.

There may be a charge if obtaining interloans from outside this network - usual charge is $15.00 but urgent requests may be $20 - $30. Most journal articles or books are obtained within seven days, but for urgent clinical need same-day supply is possible.

NB: For postgraduate studies, please use the library of your tertiary provider as the first resource for material.

Literature Searches

Literature searches are carried out on MEDLINE, CINAHL, PSYCHINFO, or other databases at our disposal.


Group sessions on database searching, or one-to-one on request. Links to online tutorials are provided.
