Reference Questions

DSHS medical and research librarians offer expert skills and knowledge on how to access, sort, evaluate, filter and disseminate information. Online library catalogs, online databases, ebibliographies, ebooks, ejournals and interlibrary loan services provide a variety of resources to library stakeholders.

The library staff cannot provide medical or legal advice. We cannot respond to questions about individual medical cases, provide second opinions or make specific recommendations regarding therapy. Those issues should be addressed directly with your healthcare provider.

Reference questions may be submitted by e-mail, telephone or brought to the Library.
