Environmental Public Health / Health Inspector: Books

Find books

First Search is the BCIT Library search engine and a good place to start. 

It simultaneously searches the Library's book collection, many full text journal articles, reports, DVDs, and electronic resources.



**If you're searching for articles on a topic, you'll want to search a database which is more focused on health sciences than First Search is. Here is a list of some full text databases.**
