The Library has a variety of resources to help users search for, find, and use information efficiently and responsibly.
Information written for consumers of health care services is written differently. Patients and their families and loved ones may not know the specialized terminology or jargon used by medical professionals, and they may not have a full understanding of the human body, the way body systems work, or the steps they need to take to make themselves better. While there are many high quality, trustworthy resources available online for consumers to learn more about their health, the difficulty of connecting the right information can be a challenge. Be sure to use an evaluation tool to ensure the quality and validity of information you find on the Web.
