Q: What does a medical librarian do? 
A: A medical librarian assists health professionals to obtain published research articles and information that answers their questions about drugs, treatments, procedures and new situations such as a disease outbreak.

Medical librarians interact constantly with doctors, nurses and other health care providers. Sometimes they assist patients and community members in finding reliable and easy-to-understand health information.

Medical librarians do not provide medical advice or information for self-treatment, but patients can learn more about their condition or preventive health as an addition to professional medical care. "
