SJHC e-Library: Request a Literature Search

A literature search may be requested by staff and physicians for the purpose of patient care. Urgent requests will be filled as soon as possible; otherwise, non-urgent requests will be filled within 1-2 weeks, depending on the query.

If you require a literature search for the following items, please submit a request at least 4 weeks before deadlines. 

  •  Quality initiatives
  •  Guidelines
  •  Standards of care/medical directives
  •  Research/publications (For SJHC research only) 

Please acknowledge the library's work in all material*

If you are doing school or course work, you may book a one-on-one training session. I do not perform searches for course work/study, conferences, presentations/lectures, or television shows, but I will work with you to build and execute an effective search.

Please fill out the form below with as much detail as possible; I will contact you within 1-2 business days of receipt.
