Kirkwood Library Services announces subscription access to an extensive set of consumer health reference books. These 82 (and counting) books cover a wide range of health topics, including stress, cancer, women’s health, men’s health, sexual health, dental, depression, diet & nutrition, and many more.
All titles contain basic, authoritative information presented in language understandable to non-experts. They provide background information on each topic, as well as in-depth discussion of treatment options and prevention, key statistics, and sources for further research. This database is updated regularly as new editions are published for each topic. It’s the perfect resource for a student researching a health topic for a speech or essay.
These titles are full-text searchable directly from the Health Reference Series database, and searchable by subject keyword through the Library’s WorldCat Search. As with most of our subscription databases, this is available to all Kirkwood faculty, staff, and students, on or off campus, by logging in with your k number and password.
