Medline Plus- Excellent Resource

Medline Plus is a really great resource for patrons regarding medical questions. The website is  run by the U.S. Library of Medicine. It focuses on three main subject headings: Health Topics, Drugs & Supplements, and Video & Cool Tools. The website provides information about diseases, diagnoses, and even shows videos of surgical procedures if the patron is interested.

I recently used this website to look up an endoscopy before my procedure. I watched what was basically a Powerpoint about the whole process. The presentation took me through it step-by-step: what I should do to prepare, the procedure, what to expect afterwards, etc. It was a great tool and it helped me to know what to expect.

It’s a great resource and I highly recommend it. Check it out here.
