You MUST tell them about FirstSearch, which is free through the state
library consortia grant to everyone in Illinois.  The Health Science
Librarians of Illinois just did a videoconference <Dec 15th> throughout
the state on medical information on the internet.  I presented the
segment on FirstSearch.  A tape should be available through your library
system if you did not attend.

The Health Reference Center is available in full text on FirstSearch.
You can give you nurses your logons and password; and if you aren't
using FirstSearch already you can call the State Library , Lynn Bierma's
office to get your logons... assuming of course that your library is a
member of ILLINET!!
