Clinicians and researchers in health care are mobile, within and across institutions. They move from ward to ward, or rotate between hospitals. Additionally the time pressure of everyday work often determines that research is conducted from home. Recent developments in mobile devices and applications allow data and information to be available at the point of care, promising significant improvements in the safety and efficiency of patient care. This paper will discuss the experience of EBSCO and Victorian hospital librarians working together to deliver remote and mobile access to clinicians in public health in Victoria.
