You can also make an appointment to see one of us, your subject specialist librarians, if you'd like some support with your research. This guide is always a work in progress, so we welcome suggestions for additional content.
Please note that this was originally two separate guides (Medicine and Medicine: EBM for General Practice) which have been merged as a single source for biomedical information at the University of Otago.
Until 15th June 2020 the university has access to this collection of 130+ books and other resources including drug monographs, case studies, multimedia and study aids from the major health publisher McGraw-Hill. Included among the books are Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine and Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment.
There is a separate guide (maintained by McGraw-Hill) with very useful information on this resource.
Sites with clinical information on Covid-19:

A review article, which will be updated weekly, has been published on PubMed.
There is further information available from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
Johns Hopkins University in the US provides a very useful map showing the global spread of COVID-19.
Digital Science is supporting the global research effort by providing all relevant content on COVID-19 from their application Dimensions as a single export file, updated daily, to make sharing and distributing research information easier. The file is openly available:
