Know how to find medical books and journals that are online but not free or available only in print
While a number of free book and journal resources are available on the Web, the vast majority are not. Be prepared to make a trip to your local medical library or to pay a publisher for access to proprietary information.
All medical information is free and on the Internet. False! Some medical information is not available on the Internet at all and other information is available on the Internet, but is not free.
At least for now, obtaining access to most medical journals or books requires either access to a library that has the book or journal or paying the publisher for the book or journal.
