  • Table of Contents

Searching for health information may be the most important type of search a librarian performs in a day. Instead of starting a health care search with a blank computer screen or simply accessing ordinary information available most anywhere on the Web, you can begin with help from the prestigious Medical Library Association. Each entry will show you how an experienced health sciences librarian would approach the question.

You can begin a truly valuable search knowing:

* Special searching issues
* What to ask
* Where to start
* Supplementary search strategies
* Topic profile
* Recommended search terms and important sites
* Hotline phone numbers
* FAQs
* Publications on the Internet
* Professional Organizations
* Patient Support organizations and discussion groups
* Best “One-Stop-Shops

Finally, there’s one read-reference source, written by librarians to help their colleagues, that contains every important aspect of the question you or your patron want to answer.



Let a fellow librarian be your guide through the sometimes dizzying amount of information available. Find hundreds of specific entries grouped in three easy-to-use volumes.

VOLUME 1: Search Strategies / Quick Reference Guide

VOLUME 2: Diseases and Disorders / Mental Health and Mental Disorders

VOLUME 3: Health and Wellness / Life Stages and Reproduction / Cumulative Index
