Over 100 medical books and journals (full text) are available online
through BRS which is also acessible through the Internet as brs.com. I believe
an annual password costs $75. These books include: Merck Manual, Gray's
Anatomy, Schiff's DISEASES OF THE LIVER, Mandells' PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF
INFECTIOUS DISEASE, Kaplan's COMPREHENSIVE TEXTBOOK OF PSYCHIATRY, Blacklow's
MACBRYDE'S SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS, and many others. They also have the entire
YEARBOOK series online as well as many leading journals.

Ask your librarian how to get an account on BRS. What you need is their
Comprehensive Core Medical Library database.
