The library has drug guide books, resources about prescriptions and pharmacology, and links to reliable websites with drug information. You might need to be logged onto to Canvas for some of the links to work.

Here is a new Research Guide for information on many different drugs:
Prescription Drug information: 



  • DailyMed (includes indications, usage, contraindications, adverse reactions, dosage, patient counseling, etc. from FDA package inserts - Search by generic or brand name)
  • MedlinePlus: Drugs, Herbs & Supplements (these patient handouts include both prescription and over the counter drugs)
  • (registration required for full monograph, but most information available without it. Has prescription and some OTC drugs)

Berkeley libraries also own print books of drug information that could be sent to any campus or to online students.
