Request loans of material from BCCA via the Library catalogue
BCCA Library Loans Policy We serve the people of BC and Yukon. Any BC or Yukon resident may borrow items designated as Patient or Public. Only BCCA-employed staff may directly borrow items designated as Professional. Other health professionals wanting to borrow Professional resources, must arrange for another library to request an Inter-library loan from BCCA. (This can be done very quickly though!) Pamphlets: single copies or a photocopy only, no bulk orders.
What about Journal Articles? Health professionals are able to come in to any of our libraries to photocopy articles (copy charges apply) Articles from journals owned by BCCA can be requested as Inter-Library loans, to be sent to your local library. We are not typically able to offer a direct mail-out service to external health professionals.
What’s available online? Pubmed.gov will link you to free full-text, if it is available. Many publishers will now provide free access to their journal content after a 6 or 12 month embargo, and increasing numbers of journals are immediately Open Access. Look for these icons in the PubMed display list:

Embargo periods Many of the 900 journals in the Biomedical Reference Collection have a 3, 6 or 12 month embargo period after the date of publication. This means you can see the citation and read the abstract, but the full-text of the article will not be available for those many months after publication. If you really want to know which journals this applies to the embargo list is here: http://www.ebscohost.com/titleLists/by-complete.htm
Don’t work at a Health Authority? e-HLbc is licensed for all health professional in BC but currently only the HAs, post-secondary institutions and a handful of professional colleges or associations pay for access.
