About This Product

Timely, Reliable Health Reference eBook Titles

For more than 25 years, librarians have trusted Omnigraphics’ Health Reference Series to answer their patrons’ health questions as they navigate the increasingly noisy, and often unreliable, landscape of medical information. Now, you can access this renowned series as an eBook collection. 

The Health Reference eBook Collection provides basic medical information for patients, families, caregivers, students, and the general public. The 80+ titles feature comprehensive, in-depth coverage of essential health topics, including diseases and injuries, men’s and women’s health, preventive care, medical tests, health technology, and more. 

This collection is especially important for people who may be dealing with a newly diagnosed disease or a chronic disorder in themselves or in a family member. People looking for preventive guidance, information about disease warning signs, medical statistics, and risk factors for health problems will also find answers to their questions in this series. 

Includes Specialized Disability Content

In addition, seven specialized books included in the collection provide essential information for understanding disability types, disability aids and benefits, and the rights of people with disabilities. 

Each book provides more than 500 pages worth of authoritative content based on data and information from respected government agencies and institutes, university research centers, and professional medical associations, including glossaries and directories of helpful organizations. Tables, charts, and illustrations display statistical data and graphic explanations. All titles are current and updated regularly.
