STAT!Ref Database of Online Books

Have you discovered that we now have access to a set of about 40 books online? A convenient feature is that the whole set can be searched by topic at one time. You can also look at the list of titles to choose a book and get into it through the table of contents.

To reach STAT!Ref go to the Medical Library’s online catalog page and you will see a link to the collection.

Titles are heavy on nursing but also include Taber’s Medical Dictionary, ICD-9-CM, Merck Manual, Red Book and ACP Pier (a highly rated evidence-based point of care tool). There is also a neat book on cultural diversity that features valuable information on working with a number of different ethnic groups.
