Searching for Medical Texts and Handbooks

LSU Libraries is not a medical library. While we do carry handbooks and books with medical information, the information might not be the most up-to-date. The handbooks should not be used for medical purposes such as diagnosis or use in the medical field. 

For the most up-to-date information, please use peer-reviewed medical journals. Select the "journals" tab for journal recommendations.


To find medical handbooks in the library.  

1.   Go to the Discovery search bar and enter your topic. 

2.   Select, "E-Books" from the "Limit To" list and then select, "Search"

The search should look something like this: "TOPIC" AND PT eBook"

3.   You can then filter out additional information such as date range and source types. 


As always, if you have questions, please let the subject specialist know.
