Given our focus on health in 2020, GDI library staff wanted to highlight the Gale Health and Wellness database, which provides information seekers with a wide range of health-related information applicable for both general and student use. There are currently 332 different topics of interest, such as “Diseases and Conditions,” “Drugs,” and “Diagnostics and Tests,” as well as up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, and Gale Cengage continues to expand and update topics covered. Once users identify a topic of interest, there are various content types (such as audio, video, reference, and news) users can access topic-specific information from, all from creditable information sources. Users can also filter their results within each of these content-type categories to include characteristics such as “peer-reviewed” or “publication date” to further specify their information needs. There are also optional search choices on this site that include a subject guide search, a search by specific publication, and an advanced search option. Consider this informative database as the first stop for up-to-date health information.
The Gale Health and Wellness database can be easily accessed from the A-Z Database list on the GDI library catalogue homepage (https://bit.ly/3p2gurm) Library staff are available for assistance in accessing this database, or any other information-seeking support you may have; please consult the Library Contacts page (https://gdins.org/student-services/library/contact/) on the GDI website to get in touch with us.
