Here you will find books, ebooks, articles, websites, and other links about health & medicine.


Welcome to the West Valley College Library information portal for health & medicine.  I have found some credible websites, subscription databases, books and e-books to support your classroom experience.  Use the tabs across the top of the guide to navigate and do not hesitate to ask a librarian for help.

Rebecca Onie: What if our healthcare system kept us healthy?

Rebecca Onie is the founder of Health Leads, a program that connects patients to basic care and resources, such as food and housing, that are the root cause of many health problems.

Tips for Research Success

  • When you find a good source (book, article, web page), record the title, author, and other bibliographic info (journal title, web address, etc.).
  • Take notes from your sources.
  • As you read, mark the parts you might like to quote in your paper.
  • Keep organized. Keep a binder or electronic folder with copies of articles, your notes, and drafts of your outline.
