Multilingual Women’s Health Library

The Multilingual Library

The MCWH Multilingual Library is a specialist library for resources and information related to the health and wellbeing of immigrant and refugee women.

Health professionals, community workers, students, businesses and, most importantly, immigrant and refugee women benefit from accessing our collections and resources every day.

The Library is free to access and includes over 5000 resources related to women’s health and wellbeing in over 70 languages. The collection includes videos, audio tapes, books, reports and journals, as well as health information flyers, booklets and fact sheets on hundreds of health topics.

Become a library member to borrow from our collection, or simply request health information on a specific topic and our librarian will assist you. If you cannot visit the library in Melbourne, email your request to us and we can send you the resources you need anywhere in Australia at no cost to you.
