The Library supports RQHR staff, physicians and students by providing:
A literature search is a thorough retrieval of information on a specific topic performed by a librarian. Based on the nature of the request, we conduct a search for articles in a variety of evidence-based resources, such as MEDLINE, PubMed, CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature), Rehabilitation Reference Center, and a plethora of other databases. The results are then compiled and delivered to the requestor via email, inter-office mail, or to be picked up in person.
To request a literature search either visit the library, phone in, email, or fill out our online ASK US form.
RQHR staff, physicians and students have borrowing privileges. Please register at one of our library locations.
Document delivery and Interlibrary borrowing are services provided by the Library. We are able to obtain any articles or books you need that are not in our collection. To request this service, simply fill out our ASK US form or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Articles are delivered by email or in print usually within 1 – 3 days. The loan period for books from other libraries is based on the lending policy of the delivering institution. We absorb the costs of this service for any work related requests.
Replacement costs for lost or damaged items are the responsibility of the borrower.
The Library offer courses on a number of tools to help make your job easier. Each season there are on average three classes offered for the staff of the health region.
These classes are typically held in the IT Training Rooms at Regina General Hospital, Pasqua Hospital and the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. Classes on different resources can be requested and can take place one-on-one or in small group sessions at a location of your own preference.
Examples of classes include:
Advertisements and registration forms can be found on the library’s intranet page, in print at all three (RGH, Pasqua, and WRC) library locations, via email, the eLink Newsletter, or on the scrolling marquee on the RQHR intranet page.
