The Spring 2016 Program Guide is out. Available for download right here or for pickup at your library.
You may want to learn more about a new fitness program or diet, or perhaps you want further information on a medication prescribed by your doctor. No matter what you need to research regarding health and medicine, it's important to get information that is current and reliable.
This guide will help you find resources available through the library on a variety of topics related to health and medicine, including information about drugs, fitness, diseases, alternative medicine, and much more.
The following are part of the Upper Arlington Public Library's premium resources. Unless you are in one of our library locations, you will need your library card number and PIN in order to access them. Please note: Links to our databases open in a new window or tab in your browser.
