DECEMBER'S Online Resource


The staff of the Long Branch Free Public Library wishes you a healthy and happy holiday!  In the interests of helping you stay healthy, we recommend the database  This website was created and is maintained by Rutgers University.  There is a search bar to the right of the logo “Rutgers University Healthy NJ Information    for Healthy Living”.  You can type a specific subject here and click on the word “GO” or you can search alphabetically by subject.  (More about that later!) 

            On the left under the logo, there are four tabs: “About Healthy NJ,” “Apps & Interactive Tools,” “A-Z,” and “Featured.”  The “Featured” tab currently provides links  to information on ebola.  The heading “Health in New Jersey” appears below those four tabs.   Ten more tabs relating to New Jersey are provided.  These range from “Disaster & Emergency Information,” “Community Health Organizations,” and “County Health Resources” to “Health Statistics.”  In between, you will find tabs to help you find health care facilities or a health care provider.  There is also a link in Spanish.

            The center section is divided into two parts, “Health & Wellness” and “Diseases & Conditions.”  There are nine tabs under “Health & Wellness”: “A to Z,”  “Interactive Tools              & Trackers,” “Diet, Food, & Nutrition,” “Exercise & Fitness,” “Diversity,” “Child Health,” “Women,” “Men,” and “Seniors.”  “Diseases & Conditions” also has the tabs “A to Z,” “Interactive Tools & Trackers” and the four tabs for age and gender, but the tab for children’s issues is called “Children” rather than “Child Health.”  In addition, “Diseases & Conditions”   has the following tabs: “Cancer,” “Diabetes & Complications,” and “Lungs & Breathing.”

The “A to Z” tab leads to the exact same list, whether you click on “A to Z” where it appears directly under the Rutgers logo, under “Health & Wellness,” or under “Diseases & Conditions.”  Click on “A to Z” and select the English or Spanish version.  “A to Z” includes physical and psychological conditions.  It also includes such topics as adoption, advance directives/living wills, Affordable Care Act, and bullying.  The “Interactive Tools & Trackers” under “Diseases & Conditions” differs from the one under “Health & Wellness.”  The former includes symptom checklists from several different sources.

On the far right-hand side of the main page are two more sections.  “Reference Desk”    has 11 more tabs:  “Dictionaries,” “Directories,” “Drug Resources,” “Full Text Books & Journals,” “Images & Videos,” “Medical Databases,” “NJ Consumer Health Libraries,” “NJ Health Science Libraries,” “Practice Guidelines” (which contains links to the webpage for the professional association for that specialty), “Statistics,” and “Tutorial.”  There is also a section entitled “Just For Kids & Teens.” This section has tabs for “Homework & Science Stuff,”    “New Jersey Stuff” (parks, amusement parks, and museums), “Sickness,” and “Wellness.”

The staff in the new computer area on the first floor will be happy to help you learn to navigate  Staff in the Technology & Career Center is available to provide one-to-one assistance.  Although there are no longer any public internet computers on the lower level, the staff on the lower level will be glad to show you the wide range of information available on this site.
