Health Science A-Z List Link Updating

Hi all -

I just wanted to let you know that I have updated several LibData resources in the Health and Medicine A-Z list (changes may not yet be visible on our site). I am planning to delete two of the resources for reasons explained below, unless you have any objections. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks,
Emily

Literature, Arts & Medicine Database - link updated

The Literature, Arts, & Medicine Database is an annotated bibliography of prose, poetry, film, video and art which was developed to be a dynamic, accessible, comprehensive resource in MEDICAL HUMANITIES, for use in health/pre-health and liberal arts settings. It is a multi-institutional project (see Editorial Board) which was initiated by Drs. Felice Aull, Martin Nachbar, Karen Brewer, Roy Smith and Irene Chen '96 of the New York University School of Medicine in the summer of 1993. This Web site is produced and maintained by the Hippocrates Project, the multi-disciplinary development laboratory for application of information technologies to medical education at New York University School of Medicine.

Smoking & Health Resource Library - link updated

The database contains abstracts of articles from medical and professional journals; books and book chapters; dissertations; reports; conference proceedings and conference papers; government documents from federal, state, local, and foreign entities; fact sheets and policy documents from U.S. and international nonprofit organizations; and other documents. New Citations added to the database in the last eight weeks are also available. New Citations include recently published tobacco-related articles from peer-reviewed journals of behavioral, scientific, and medical literature.
