Public Health Resources

Countway Library is dedicated to supporting the research interests of our students and investigators in the varied fields of Public Health.


"Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play."


Students and researchers in the field of Public Health strive to investigate, understand, and effect change, in a variety of fields in order to improve the health and well-being of our vast and changing population. There are numerous resources to support these endeavors but the number of options may make discovery difficult to find or access.

Countway Library's Public Health Liaison Librarians are available to help you efficiently navigate the available tools and resources and to build a solid foundation of evidence from which to pursue your research questions.

Review Service and Mediated Searching

The Review Service has been created to encourage productive collaborations between librarians and researchers in the Longwood community on knowledge synthesis manuscript publications and other research intensive projects. 

The Countway Library of Medicine Research and Instruction team provides mediated literature searching for Harvard patrons, subject to librarian availability, as a major component of our review service.

A mediated search is any search of the literature developed and carried out by a librarian on behalf of a user requesting the search.  Mediated searches may be carried out to support:

  • Systematic reviews
  • Scoping Reviews
  • Other types of knowledge synthesis reports
  • Literature-based investigations

Complete the required Review Service Mediated Search form to get started.
