Whenever you learn about a new health topic, you’ll need to become familiar with a new set of terms related to the topic, which is when a glossary may come in handy. Specialized Information Services at the National Library of Medicine provides access to glossaries covering a range of health topics, from HIV/AIDS to disaster-related terminology:
- HIV/AIDS: Use the AIDSinfo Glossary (also available in Spanish) to look up definitions and illustrations to HIV/AIDS-related terms in consumer-friendly language.
- Multilingual Glossaries: Find links to glossaries in multiple languages under the “Dictionaries, Glossaries, and Online Translation Tools” section of the Multi-Cultural Resources for Health Information page.
- Disasters: The Disaster Information Management Research Center provides a guide to Disaster Glossaries, with links to glossaries under topics like “Climate and Weather” and “Infectious Diseases and Bioterrorism.”
- Toxicology: The full IUPAC Glossary of Terms Used in Toxicology, 2nd Edition (2007) is available on the Environmental Health and Toxicology Information page.
