Onsite UWA Databases 

The University of Western Australia (UWA) Medical and Dental Library has a large collection of dentistry resources.

North Metropolitan TAFE students studying at the Oral Health Centre of Western Australia (OHCWA) are registered with the UWA Library as reciprocal borrowers which will give them borrowing rights.

You may borrow hard copy  books and journals but online resources are only accessible within the UWA library.

As a reciprocal borrower at the UWA Library, it is your responsibility to know and abide by the UWA Library rules.

Librarians at the UWA Medical and Dental Library are available to assist you to find information for your assignments.

Please ask at the Medical and Dental Library Inquiries desk or phone (08) 9346 7570.
