  • Use a drop down to narrow by type, need (clinical practice or research), or tools. 
  • Click "apply." 
  • All results will bring back the medical resources the library provides that matches your query. 
  • All blue boxes were designed to be a comprehensive source of information on that resource: what it is, where to access it, how to access it if there are special instructions, and any features that will help users quickly determine what the resource provides (such as cases, drug information, 2 Minute Medicine, etc.) 

Note: this is a stand alone resource compiled and provided by the medical librarians to bridge the user with our most frequently used resources. It is not a comprehensive source of all FAU libraries resources. For comprehensive resources, please search for the following keywords:
