Try VisualDx!
We now subscribe to VisualDx, an image-based clinical support tool with integrated point-of-care information. This tool can be used for patient care and study in identifying visually identifiable diseases including dermatologic, infectious, genetic, metabolic, drug-induced conditions, and occupational injuries. More than 28% of the images are of skin types IV, V, and VI. Check out our fact sheet for more information!

New Nutrition Database!
Nutrition and Food Sciences is a specialist internet resource that gathers together research, reviews and news on nutrition and the food sciences in an easily searchable database. It covers the whole food chain from the raw ingredients to the physiological and health effects of nutrients. Key subject areas include public health, clinical nutrition, nutrition physiology, food safety, food security, consumer behavior, food science and technology, and food product groups such as functional foods. It includes full-text journal articles, conference papers, reports, news items, and reviews and reports written by subject experts.

Kresge Library is currently open at reduced capacity. To ensure that Oakland University community patrons can access the building, we are allowing limited access to guest users who have specific requests for access to our collections.

All visitors must comply with current campus masking and social distancing requirements: https://www.oakland.edu/return-to-campus/
