When searching the Library catalog, here are some tips:
An easy way to start searching the Library catalog is to do a keyword search for words that describe your topic. You may need to experiment with keywords to find ones that work for your topic. Try a keyword search for ECG OR EKG. Once you find some items, you can use subject headings to find other items that cover the same topic.
Another strategy is to search by call number. Health-related materials are shelved in the "R" section of libraries that use the Library of Congress classification system.
Library staff members will be happy to help you locate books--just ask!

They provide overviews, definitions, specific information (such as causes & symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, prognosis, etc) or addresses.
