Medical Dictionaries
  • MedlinePlus, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, in partnership with Merriam-Wesbster provides users with a search engine to find medical terminology.
  • mediLexicon is a comprehensive free online medical dictionary powered by Stedman's Medical Dictionary.
  • WebMD stores medical terminology deriving from Stedman's Medical Dictionary, which also makes it a great tool.

Health Information Sites
The College of Westchester Library also has books on health and health professions. The following are a sample of the collection:
