Consumer Health

Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Our Medical Library colleagues at the University of British Columbia have produced an excellent and comprehensive resource guide on all aspects of the current coronavirus pandemic for the public, patients, and health professionals.

This guide is to help you get started in finding reliable health information on the Internet.

It is best to first try and find information written for a Canadian audience, but it is not always possible. We have highlighted the Canadian content where available.

Our colleagues at the McGill Department of Family Medicine have created an excellent resource for evaluating the quality of health information on Web sites, including links to tutorials.

eBooks from the Wendy Patrick Health Information Collection

eBooks on Health and Wellness Topics

The Schulich Library has a collection of consumer health books separate from its main collection. This collection is called the Wendy Patrick Health Information Collection.

To help with access to books to answer your health and wellness questions during the Library closure, we have created lists of the ebooks available on health and wellness topics, since they are not easily findable in WorldCat.

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during this unprecedented time.
