Ask a Librarian

Ask a Librarian

This section offers a unique service to members of Member Societies of Gastroenterology who do not have easy access to high quality clinical and research information. The 'Ask a Librarian' desk is staffed by professional medical librarians who can provide support with searching all relevant research and clinical literature databases for you. The WGO 'Ask a Librarian' service can help you find a simple citation or provide support for complex evidence based gastroenterology literature searches. Should you be planning a lecture or writing a paper and need an overview of the latest or all available literature on your topic, simply complete the online form below.

While exceptions can be made, please note that this service is made available to those countries with poor access as defined by HINARI criteria. Click Here to view information on eligibility.
