New Subject Guides from NLM
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Reference and Web Services Section, Public Services Division, compiled a select set of subject guides: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/Subject_Guides/subjectguidesonselectedtopics/index.html. These guides can serve as research starting points for health professionals, researchers, librarians, students, and others. Each guide lists a variety of resources, many of which are Internet accessible and free. These subject guides consist of many resources but should not be considered completely comprehensive.
Released guides cover Health Statistics, Library Statistics, and Conference Proceedings. Two additional guides will be available in late fall covering Drug Information and Genetics/Genomics. The topics for these Subject Guides are drawn from the most frequently asked questions that the Reference and Web Services staff encounters in e-mails and onsite. The staff plans to update the guides, reviewing them as needed to maintain their links and content.
The Subject Guides are listed on the left side of the screen. Clicking on the ‘plus’ sign will give you the complete list of sub-categories for the Guides. Additionally, you can click “Next Section” at the bottom of each page to move on to the following sub-category of resources.
NLM hopes you find the Subject Guides useful, and welcomes your comments or suggestions. For comments, use the link on the front page of the Subject Guides.
