Note: Information on this web site is provided for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice. If you have specific questions about a personal medical problem, you should contact your professional healthcare provider.


There are several types of information available to Emergency Medical Services students through the ACC libraries, both in print form and electronically. The tabs along the top of the page provide details on the different formats listed below:

Articles Articles from journals and magazines are the primary source for recent research in a field. Most cutting-edge research in the health sciences will appear in articles first. EPCC databases can help connect you to these articles.
Books A book can provide detailed background and historical information. Books are a place to check for information that is generally accepted in the field.
Reference Books This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions and shorter explanations.
Web Sites The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and from professional organizations.
