Library Resources for the Case of Ms. Gelb
AccessMedicine is an online system licensed by the UIC Library which
includes the online full-text of 16 major medical reference books such as
Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine.
Part 13 of Harrison's is devoted to Disorders of the Gastrointestinal System and contains 24
chapters on this topic. Section 2 is entitled Liver and Biliary Tract
Disease and, within this section, Chapter 305: Diseases of the
Gallbladder and Bile Ducts may be of particular interest for this case.
ACP Medicine provides authoritative clinical information across the 15
sub-specialties of internal medicine including Gastroenterology. Once you
select ACP Medicine, click on the Titles tab at the top. Then
click on the arrow to the left of ACP Medicine which will expand the
contents for browsing (you may want to browse to Chapter 4:
Gastroenterology, Section VI: Gallstones and Biliary Tract Disease). You can also search across the contents
through the search box at the top of the screen. For example, try searching for cholelithiasis.
MD Consult is an online system licensed by the UIC Library which
offers over 50 online full-text medical reference books. To search
just the reference books in MD Consult, click on the Books tab on the
MD Consult home page. From there, you can do a topic search across
all titles. The books can be browsed individually by title, table of
contents, or the back-of-the-book indexes. For the case of Ms. Gelb,
you may wish to use MD Consult to access the full text of
Cecil Textbook of Medicine,
particularly section XIII Diseases of the Liver, Gall Bladder, and the Bile Ducts. Also useful may be
Sleisenger & Fordtran's Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease,
particularly Section VIII: Biliary Tract (Chapters 62 and 63 both discuss the gall bladder).
