Overview

Now, there is an authoritative microfiche program designed specifically for health care professionals that provides literature focusing on national health care and related vital issues. Health Care puts previously difficult-to-acquire government documents, government-sponsored studies, and surveys by private agencies into one comprehensive, accessible collection of full-text documents.

This series is an important research tool for professionals working in health maintenance organizations, health science libraries, long-term care facilities, and hospitals. Institutions supporting programs in health-related areas such as public health, hospital administration, nursing, allied health sciences, social work, medicine, and public planning find material on such significant and timely topics as:

  • malpractice
  • abortion
  • drug dependency
  • OSHA
  • social services
  • national health insurance
  • genetics
  • research methods

Health Care is assembled from the holdings of three prime repositories of health care literature: Parklawn Health Library in Rockville, Maryland; Parklawn Health Library in Hyattsville, Maryland; and the National Health Planning Information Center of Hyattsville, Maryland.

The collection is arranged into 16 relevant subject categories:

  • Health Bibliographies
  • Health Education
  • Health Equipment & Technology
  • Health Facilities
  • Health Legislation
  • Health Planning
  • Health Services
  • Life-Style Related to Health Care
  • Health Economics
  • Health & Environmental Factors
  • Health Organization & Administration
  • Health Information Systems
  • Health Manpower
  • Health Regulation
  • Health Statistics
  • Special Issues in Health Care

A printed guide provides control and access to the thousands of microfiche in both the base collection and the updates.

  • Content Type: A printed bibliographic guide is free with the collection.
