Yacca Library NWHHS: NWHHS staff support

Yacca Library is the Medical Library for the North West Hospital and Health Service (NWHHS).

   How we can help

Are you conducting a clinical audit / quality activity / service evaluation, or undertaking research?

We can assist Queensland Health staff with:

  • Planning your literature review and study protocol / project plan.
  • Advisory information for seeking ethical and governance approvals for your project.
  • Workshops and training focusing on "the search in research" skills.
  • Proof reading and referencing checking a range of documents.
  • EndNote basics.

Are you undertaking a graduate program, professional development or university courses/ programs?

  • One-on-one meetings for how to conduct a literature search, academic writing and understanding assessment.
  • Borrow your core texts from the library, check the Queensland Health library catalogue for available titles and eBooks.
  • Proof reading and reference checking.
  • EndNote basics.

Please Note: University researchers are encouraged to contact their Faculty Liaison Librarian for academic support and research assistance. Where you are completing a coursework qualification for academic credit (bachelor, diploma, masters) there is an expectation you will complete project research yourself, with library services providing research skills support.


These guides are open access and are a great quick reference for getting your intext referencing and citations list formatted correctly.
