The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment now makes available the Public Health Digital Library (PHDL) to help local public health agency staff find and use the best evidence-based information available. The PHDL includes:

  • Over 300 electronic journals spanning the diverse knowledge domains in public health
  • 75 electronic books in clinical and public health topics
  • Global health and systematic reviews databases 
  • Other information resources  

The PHDL features the PubMed database which makes finding and accessing PHDL journals easy across any health-related topic.  Users can also find and order articles not available through the PHDL from the partner library, UC Health System Library.
