Welcome to the Subject Guide for Medicine!

Mother and babyMedicine is a wide-ranging subject, and that's reflected in the range and complexity of information resources that are relevant to you. In this guide we'll direct you to the most useful tools, and show you how to make best use of them.

SurgeryDon't forget that whether you're a student or a member of staff, you're very welcome to contact one of the subject librarians for medicine - we can give you expert advice on anything covered in this guide (and much more).

And finally, if you discover that any of the links don't work, or if you know of any great resources we haven't included, please let us know.
