Identifying Misinformation



Do you have information needs? We can help.
This page provides resources for the study of health topics. Here you will find valuable information for conducting research, including how to find articles, books, and websites.

MCC has many resources for health information.  Students sometimes use health information for allied health or nursing classes.  Sometimes students use health resources for English or speech classes.  And students often want health information for their own use. You may use the tabs to the left of this box to locate information on finding books or links to articles and websites to help with your research.

Please consult a reference librarian if you need additional help with anything you see on these pages.. Our librarian staff is available by Echat here:
