Welcome to the Nursing Resources page of the Sidney Silverman Library - a starting point for finding different types of nursing information.
Remember that books are outdated as soon as they are published. The latest information is in research journal articles. However, books are valuable sources of basic information. The Sidney Silverman Library includes both professional level books used by nurses and physicians (in some areas) and books written for the general reader.
Basic disease and health information is also available online in sources such as these:
Health Reference Center (library database)
Medline Plus (free Web site) http://medlineplus.gov/
Mayo Clinic (free Web site) http://www.mayoclinic.com/
