The library holds specialist print collections relating to nursing and midwifery practice, education, history and working conditions. Members are welcome to loan up to six items from this collection for 14 days. Our special collection includes primary materials from the historic 1986 50-day Victorian nurses strike and UNA, the journal of the Victorian Trained Nurses Association (1903-1974). Digitised special collections can be explored online through Victorian Collections.
Members also have access to e-books and thousands of authoritative, peer-reviewed journals through our electronic subscriptions:
