(Moulton, AL), (January 4, 2017) – The Lawrence County Public Library is pleased to announce online access to the Merck Manuals at  

The Merck Manuals are a widely used medical resource for professionals and consumers published since 1899. The digital form has both a professional version, with more advanced content for medical students and professionals, and a consumer version, with easier to understand content for laypeople, and translations to many languages, including Spanish, Korean, and German. Considering the relatively short lifespan and high expense of medical reference texts, this is a great opportunity to have a continuously updated medical resource available to patrons. 

Access to the Merck Manuals are made possible by the Alabama Public Library service and is part of Merck’s Global Medical Knowledge 2020 initiative, which aims to make current medical information accessible to 3 billion professionals and patients around the world by 2020.
