What kinds of items do you need?
To investigate what items are available on a certain subject,
you can use PubMed(MEDLINE)
for overseas journals or Igaku-chuo-zasshi
for domestic journals. Both are databases of journal articles.
For introductory information, type in a keyword and search on the OPAC
to see the classification in the search results. Go to the stack with
books of that classification, and you will see many similar books. You
are advised to take some books and see if they provide what you are
looking for yourself.
Where are they?
When you know which item you want to read, the next thing you
need to do is to locate it. You can check on the OPAC to see if the
university has that item. Type in the title of the book or journal for
a list of search results. Click on the item to open the page of bibliographical
information of the book or journal and see the location. gIbunkanh means
that the item is available in the Branch Library of Medicine. Another
location means the item is available somewhere else in the university
(perhaps on other campuses). For items older than 1986, search the card
catalog on the second floor.
