"Global Library of Women's Medicine (GLOWM) is based on the six-volume Gynecology and Obstetrics series that was edited for many years by editor-in-chief Sciarra. The 442 chapters are organized into six main sections: "Gynecology"; "Obstetrics"; "Maternal and Fetal Medicine"; "Gynecologic Oncology"; "Reproductive Endocrinology, Infertility, and Genetics"; and "Fertility Regulation, Psychosomatic Problems, and Human Sexuality." Chapters are generally 3,000-10,000 words long, frequently include illustrations, and are written by experts from major medical centers in the US, UK, and other countries."--Choice.
The largest content area is the A-Z Health Topics section, which covers over 800 topics. However, the information presented is strongly directed toward consumers. Beyond the A-Z topics, the site contains some longer consumer-level publications in various languages. The Publications tab links to federal reports as well as a section geared to health professionals. An up-to-date news section includes information on recent medical studies and government legislation. In general, the website could be a starting point for quick background information, but it is not as robust as many other government websites that cover similar topics. The site's best feature is its news section, which would be a good place to pick a research topic or to keep up with important happenings in women's health.--Choice
