Guide to resources for assessment tasks in health issues, health education and public health


Caulfield Library external photoHealth Sciences is taught at the Caulfield campus and covers health issues, health education, and public health.

These pages are a guide to locating relevant resources for assessment tasks. Collections supporting these subjects are held in the Caulfield Library, the Peninsula Library, and the Hargrave-Andrew Library.  The affiliated teaching hospital libraries also hold medical collections.

Whether you are on-campus or online, you will find library resources and programs that are academically relevant to your learning, teaching, and research. Our librarians can work with you to develop your research skills, citing and referencing, and help you to access services and resources in the Library. In 2021, we will continue to offer virtual drop-ins via Zoom.

Our blog - Adjusting to online learning and other things you did not anticipate this year was made in 2020, but still has some relevance in 2021.
