Public Health

“the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health and efficiency through organized community effort."

Subscription Databases

The library purchases access to hundreds of databases that allow you to search for individual journal articles. These databases also contain a majority of scholarly work; but might also have book reviews, conference proceedings, patents, popular articles and other resource types, so you still need to be aware when looking for information. 

Free Databases & Websites

The following is a non-exhaustive list of freely available resources that provide information for public health topics. Most of these links are pulled from the more extensive University of Massachusetts Medical Center's Free Public Health Databases page.
