About this Guide

This guide will help you find relevant databases, books, journals, websites and specialist resources for your research in medicine. Please explore the tabs along the top for tips on finding specific types of resources. You can also make an appointment to see us, your subject specialist librarians, if you'd like some support with your research. The guide is always a work in progress, so we welcome suggestions for additional content.
