Literature Searches

The WRHA Virtual Library provides literature search services to WRHA staff.  We will provide a list of relevant articles with abstracts on your selected topic for you to review.

After submitting your literature search request, you will be contacted by a WRHA Virtual Library team member.  They will review the details of your search request to gather more information such as:

  • the level of detail required
  • the scope of your search topic
  • sources of information to be searched 
  • how you would like search results organized and delivered
  • how the results will be used: for teaching sessions or presentations, policy updates or quality projects, writing for publication, professional development, patient care, patient education, or other


Please fill out the literature search request form and include a phone number and email address where you can be contacted. Once contacted your request will be completed within 10 working days. If your request is urgent, please contact us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.

We are also able to support some other types of research projects, such as systematic or scoping reviews. See our Research Services page to learn more.
