Open Resources


This Libguide provides access to a range of freely available healthcare information resources collated by RCSI Library. The resources include open access journals and healthcare databases, international clinical guidelines for practitioners, grey literature sources, and information leaflets for patients. We provide guidance on literature searching in databases, and a mini tutorial on searching PubMed.

The resources listed in this guide are open to all and do not require a login.
