This guide will help you find reliable information on health.

Medical Reference Books Online

Find Library Books

In the Dewey Decimal System, most medical, health, nursing, and related books are found in the 610-619 section. In the Reference area, these books include medical encyclopedias, dictionaries, drug guides, and other reference books. In the Stacks, these include books on many specific medical and health related topics. If you need an overview, a definition, or an answer to a specific question, use a reference book. Don't hesitate to ask a librarian for help. (Keep in mind that librarians cannot provide medical advice, but they can lead to you quality sources of information). Search in the library catalog by keyword or by subject to find books and DVDs on any topic.
