Library Guides

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.

Before placing a request

The ANZCA Library subscribes to a large number of Australian and international medical journals in the specialised areas of anaesthesia and pain medicine. Please ensure that you have searched our journal collection prior to making any request.

Requests can be submitted for any journal article/book chapter/conference paper that is not available online.

Please Note: ANZCA Library cannot fulfil any inter-library loan requests for books or similar items. However, it is possible to request copies of book chapters.


Submitting requests

  1. Request a single article/chapter/paper.
  2. Request multiple articles/chapters/papers.
Please Note: Users who make requests via email will need to complete a one-off Copyright User Agreement form. The completed form needs to be scanned and emailed to before any requests can be processed.

Delivery times

  • The Library aims to fulfil article requests within 5 working days, however this timeframe may be longer if the article is difficult to source.
  • Articles are normally delivered to the requestor via email in PDF format, however there may be some instances where articles need to be delivered by post (due to copyright restrictions).
  • Requests made via email and/or without a completed copyright declaration may take longer to process.
  • Please Note: If you require your article/s urgently, please call Library staff prior to submitting your request.
