Our mission is to provide excellent information and knowledge management services that enable the MRC to achieve world-class research status.

The Library provides access to a vast range of search tools, some of which may be more familiar to you than others. Your need for a particular type of information, such as a thesis, research report, conference paper, or raw data will affect what type of search tool you should use in order to generate the best results.

We know we won't hold all the research information you need; for material we don’t have, you can email to place a document delivery request.

To find out what we do have, both physically and digitally, use the Library Catalogue and the other information resources. Paid-for online services, such as electronic journals and databases, will require authentication.

Electronic Resources

Due to site-licensing agreements, access to the Information Services Division's online journals and databases are restricted to current staff of the South African Medical Research Council.

Where to start your search of the Library's ever increasing electronic resources depends on:

  • what type of material you are looking for (journal articles or monographs, citations, abstracts, or full-text)
  • whether you are looking for a known item (known citation, particular journal title)

Access the individual journal titles that are available online.
