Looking for online health information that you can trust? Then you'll want to check out MedlinePlus (medlineplus.gov) which is produced by the National Library of Medicine, the world’s largest medical library! This website is constantly updated with new links added every day.

The search engine at the top of the page provides an excellent starting point for your research. Instead of using Google where the results have not been evaluated, searching from MedlinePlus provides a list of authoritative results that have been carefully selected using strict guidelines

Here are just a few resources available from MedlinePlus:

  • The Health Topics section which contains information on over 950 diseases and conditions 
  • A Drugs, Herbs and Supplements database where you can learn about side effects, dosage, and special precautions for many drugs, herbs, and supplements, with new content added frequently. 
  • The Videos and Tools page where you can find links to health videos, interactive games, surgery videos, and Health Check Tools with calculators, quizzes, and questionnaires.
