Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) (first reviewed in the July 18, 1997 Scout Report) in 2000 added the medical encyclopedia to its popular consumer health resource MEDLINEplus. Accessed via the above URL or from the Medical Encyclopedia tab at the main MEDLINE site, the encyclopedia contains over 4,000 articles and medical images organized in eight topical sections: Disease, Injury, Nutrition, Poison, Special, Surgery, Symptoms, and Tests. Users can browse the encyclopedia entries alphabetically within each of the eight areas. Some entries are a bit brief, but most contain images and cross-references to related entries. Overall, this is an excellent resource for both health professionals and consumers.
