Alternative Medicine Information Resources
Research Guide: Alternative Medicine Information Resources
The January Library Grand Rounds focused on authoritative sources of information regarding alternative medicine.
Susan Hadley, M.D., DHMC Community Health Center, presented a brief overview of alternative medicine (also known as complementary medicine or integrative medicine). Librarians from Dartmouth's Biomedical Libraries presented two sources of reputable information about alternative medicine: Alt-HealthWatch and the NIH's CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) Citation Index. In addition, other valuable information resources for alternative medicine were identified.
Alt-HealthWatch is a *full-text* resource for clinicians and consumers. It includes periodicals, peer-reviewed journals, academic and professional publications, magazines, consumer newsletters and newspapers, research reports, and association newsletters focused on complementary, alternative, and integrated approaches to health care and wellness.
The NIH 's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Citation Index consists of more than 90,000 bibliographic citations from 1966 to 1997, culled from the MEDLINE database.
