Public Library

Although the world wide web can be a good source for finding health information, you must be careful to evaluate the resources you find. It is all too easy to find poorly-researched, inaccurate and just plain misleading medical information on the internet.

The following resources have been selected by reference librarians at the Northern Waters Library Service, and are known to be good sources for anyone researching medical information.
