Health and medical information is constantly changing. Portland Public Library is here to help you find reliable and timely information to help you with your research.

Looking for Books?

Browse subject guides – created by Portland Public Library’s Health Librarian – to find books on a specific topic or interest.

Keep In Mind…

Librarians can help you find information about specific diagnoses and treatment, but we cannot offer medical advice. Your doctor is always your best source of advice for healthcare decisions. We have many books to help you prepare for your office visit. You can also talk to an expert by calling one of the National Institutes of Health’s information lines.

Find the most trusted websites and resources about COVID-19, from both around the world and in your community.
