EBSCOhost eBooks collection


The establishment of this ebook collection was made possible by a generous bequest left to the RACGP’s Queensland Faculty by Dr Walter Monz MB BS (Hons), a Foundation member of the RACGP (1958), and Faculty Board member until 1986, who died in January 2003.

Dr Monz was computer literate and keenly aware of the potential for education via this rapidly developing technology, so it is fitting that his bequest was used to broaden the range of electronic resources available to members via the RACGP Library. The ebook collection was launched on 1 May, 2004 at the 47th Gold Coast Clinical Update weekend with a further 50 EBSCOhost ebooks added to the collection.

Access the ebooks by clicking on the EBSCOhost ebook button – if you have an ESBCOhost account other functions are available to you such being able to create your own folder to store notes and download books. If you don’t have an account follow the ‘Create one now’ link and follow the instructions.
