With so much misinformation about COVID-19 at our fingertips, where do we turn for reliable information? Information professionals are here to help! Robin Parker, a librarian whose subject specialties include family medicine, surgery, and internal medicine has created a guide to COVID-19 resources.
“This guide is a compilation of reputable sources of data and research relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. The resources and information linked here come from a variety of lists and social media sources, including the Medical Library Association COVID-19 Resources for Medical Librarians and other Information Professionals,” says Robin.
Included in the guide are links to pages from a variety of local, national, and international sources. Lists of COVID-19 primary and secondary (evidence synthesis) resource sources are included on the Research tab. Freely available COVID-19 academic resources also included.
The COVID-19 guide will be updated as new resources become available, but may not be exhaustive in all areas. Other similar guides and resource lists are linked in the Other Resource Lists tab. The Evidence Synthesis Specialist at the Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit (MSSU), has also compiled a list of useful links here.
For resources especially for Nova Scotia clinicians, check the NSHA library COVID-19 Research Guide.
Robin welcomes suggestions on additional resources that can be included in the guide. She can be contacted at email@example.com
