Imi Hoola Resources

Getting Started

The library provides lots of information on clinical medicine and public health. The hard part is figuring out where to start and how to find it!  Here are some helpful hints:

  • If you want an overview on a condition, treatment or health issue, you should probably start with a medical textbook or clinical reference.
  • If you want specific information, like how the common cold affects sleep apnea, you should start with a journal article.
