The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute was established in 1915, and is Australia’s oldest medical research institute.
The vision was for an institute that would be: "the birthplace of discoveries rendering signal service to mankind in the prevention and removal of disease and the mitigation of suffering."
Since 1915 our scientists have been making significant discoveries in immunity, cancer, infectious diseases. These discoveries have advanced our understanding of human biology and resulted in new and more effective treatments for patients worldwide.
Information Services and Research Support provides an information, records and archive service to the institute’s research and professional services staff. The team also conducts a range of research support activities including bibliometric and research impact analysis and EndNote assistance.
Our resources include the institute’s research publication repository, which aims to advance research outcomes. Where copyright and confidentiality conditions permit, full-text articles have been made available.
Our significant historical collection includes a complete set of original research papers, collections of books by Sir Frank MacFarlane Burnet, Sir Gustav Nossal and Professor Don Metcalf, as well as print and digital copies of annual reports dating back to 1920. Our archives also include original historical documents relating to the formation and establishment of the institute.
