How to access electronic resources
The Library's Electronic Resources page is a complete listing of all of the electronic resources and journal databases available to the Bond community. Click the Electronic Resources link on the Library homepage to explore the wide range of electronic resources available to you.
As a student in the Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine, some of the electronic resources you'll find most useful include:
- Databases for searching the medical journal literature, such as Medline, Embase, CINAHL, Informit Health Collection, SPORTDiscus, BMJ.com, JAMA, NEJM.org
- Multimedia resources such as Anatomy TV, SMART Imagebase, Bates Visual Guide to Clinical Examination
- Clinical resources such as First Consult, UpToDate, BMJ Best Practice (including Clinical Evidence), Therapeutic Guidelines (also known as eTG Complete)
- Online book collections such as MD Consult, ebrary, Stat!Ref and EBL (EBook Library)
Off campus access to electronic resources
All of the electronic resources, with the exception of UpToDate, can be accessed off-campus. You will be prompted for your Bond network username and password. (UpToDate can only be accessed on Bond University campus computers - this is a licensing restriction imposed by the publisher).
How to use e-Journal Portal
The Library's e-Journal Portal (link available on the Library homepage) is a way to access Bond's online journal subscriptions. It's particularly useful when you're looking for a specific journal or a specific article, for example:
- You want to know whether or not the Library subscribes to a particular journal (e.g. International Journal of Sports Medicine), or
- You have a reference to a particular journal article and you're trying to obtain the full text of the article (e.g. Robertson I, Curran C, McCaffrey N, Shields C, McEntee P. Adductor tenotomy in the management of groin pain in athletes. Int J Sports Med. 2011;32(1):45-8.)
If the journal is not available through the e-Journal Portal, you can request a copy of the article you need from the Library's Document Delivery service - there is no cost to you for this service (more information on Document Delivery later).
