Our Policies

Our team of Consumer Health Librarians are always happy to help you find information so that you can speak comfortably with your doctor and achieve better outcomes through compliance and understanding. All librarians conducting research are certified through the Medical Library Association’s Consumer Health Information Specialization Program. Librarians never conduct diagnoses, recommend or vet healthcare providers or use symptoms checkers that are available on the Internet. Librarians are happy to provide you with information about topics or healthcare providers so that you can make an informed decision in your interests. All research, with the exception of wellness, requires a diagnosis by a doctor or healthcare provider. Librarians adhere to a legal disclaimer:
