The PHI library provides a reference to Health Informatics literature. The library does not try to list every source on every topic, rather it points you to material tackling the wider agenda of Health Informatics.

Key references

With Health Informatics changing rapidly, leaders in the field need to maintain a broad understanding of the wider agenda: for this reason the library's key references are to journals, newsletters and web sources.

One set of reference material of particular interest is the archive of the back issues of the 'Go-Between', a newsletter running for 15 years focusing exclusively on Health Informatics.

Materials, including books, of more specific interest are referenced in other sections of PHI. We will add new literature sources as we become aware of them and, for this reason, we ask that you let us know of other/new material – use the feedback form.

To access the different sections of the library, use the menu options on the left-hand menu.
