Black and Brown Skin is an online resource developed by Malone Mukwende, a medical student from St George's. It showcases how a range of diseases are presented clinically on black and brown skin. Most of the images in textbooks tend to be of white skin, so this project addresses this important gap.
It includes a downloadable handbook named Mind the Gap: A handbook of clinical signs in Black and Brown skin, but the site continues to be updated with new examples.
The Drill Hall Library has a small number of useful health-related DVDs available. The DVDs are shelved in the Group Study Zone (behind the Lifestyle Collection) and are listed on our catalogue.
Books are an essential resource for academic study (though you will need to go beyond them!). Luckily, we have well over 100,000 of them in the Drill Hall Library, and access to thousands of electronic books as well.
You can find physical and electronic books through your university LibrarySearch, using the options in the left-hand menu.
Ebooks are available from each university - these can be accessed from home and in most cases can be used by multiple people at once.
Search your university LibrarySearch, and select ebooks from the left-hand menu. If no ebook option appears, it simply means we don't have any ebooks for that search, but you can always try a different search.
Note: you may need to view the video in full screen mode to see the captions.
We don't keep printed copies of theses or dissertations in the library, but you may be able to find them on your institutional repository:
Alternatively, you could try the British Library's EThOS service, which provides access to many theses from UK universities.
