The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.

The library supports the Women's and Children's Hospital's role in enhancing and promoting the health of women, children and young people.


The library, as part of the SA Health Library Service, provides a service for Women's and Children's Health Network staff, SA Health staff more broadly, and students on placement.
