|Other Post-Polio Libraries on the Internet
|In addition to expanding our own
Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library, to assist in your search for
information we are compiling a list of other Post-Polio libraries.
These are sites that include a number of full text articles on
Post-Polio related matters.
Post-Polio Articles on the Internet
|This is a list of various Post-Polio
articles to be found at other sites but which can't be described as
Post-Polio Libraries. See also the Medical
Professional Education directory which includes sites with
articles specifically written for the Medical Profession, e.g. Case
Studies, Nurse Training etc.
|A descriptive list of books complete
with contact and ordering information.
|An increasing number of support
groups around the world are making their newsletters available online.
|This is a catalogue of online
journals and other publications covering the fields of Medicine and
Disability. The first section includes established journals that are
typically cited in post-polio medical articles and that have at least
some of their output available online although not necessarily articles
specifically about Post-Polio. The second section lists journals that
belong to a new generation of web specific publications, i.e. they are
only available via the web.

|The purpose of the Library
Assistant is to point you to a number of resources that
will enable you to do your own research regarding what medical articles
have been published primarily in peer reviewed medical journals but
It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore in any way be interpreted as an endorsement.
People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.
Although a number of these documents are available elsewhere on the Internet we have decided where possible to keep complete versions of documents at this site. This will ensure that the majority of listed documents are always accessible.
Please be forewarned that some articles are quite long. We decided against splitting articles into a number of smaller pages as most of you will want to print them in their entirety. There are a few exceptions where we have included complete booklets and these have been split by chapter or section.
