About the Consumer Health Library

Finding trustworthy answers to your medical questions is important – especially when your health or the health of a loved one is involved. That's why Baystate Health librarians offer free support in the form of current, reliable health information.

The Consumer Health Library, a service of the Baystate Health Sciences Library, provides information by request for patients and their families. We're working to improve public access to quality medical information so that patients & families can make informed decisions about their health.
