Up-To-Date Health Resources for Stress Awareness Month

April is Stress Awareness month, and Fulton County Libraries has many different online resources to help our patrons learn about stress and other health related topics.

The Infobase Health Reference Center contains articles from medical, scientific, and academic publications like The Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health, The Encyclopedia of Stress and Stress-Related Diseases, and The Facts On File Encyclopedia of Health and Medicine, along with dozens of similar resources. Like all platforms offered by Infobase, tools for citing and evaluating sources is provided.

When you search for a term inside the Health Reference Center, you can also create a folder to save results for later. This can be extra  helpful if you are searching for images or videos to use in a presentation for later, as those formats don't always copy and paste well into documents.
