Request an article

The article request service provides ANZCA fellows, trainees and staff with material which is not held by ANZCA Library. This includes copies of journal articles, chapters from books or conference papers required for your research, patient care and learning.

Searching for articles and submitting requests

The ANZCA Library subscribes to a large number of Australian and international medical journals in the specialised areas of anaesthesia and pain medicine. These can all be accessed via the library discovery service. Requests can be submitted for any journal article/book chapter/conference paper that are not available full-text.
