"Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it." – Samuel Johnson
The goal of the Cancer Resource Center is to provide information to help patients and families make informed decisions during difficult times. The Resource Center offers access to current information about cancer prevention, treatment and support. A professional medical librarian and volunteers are on hand to assist visitors. Books and videotapes may be used in the resource center or borrowed. Some materials can be mailed for those unable to get to the center and information is also available on other health topics.
The Cancer Resource Center is an American Cancer Society Information Center and is open to the public. All services are free.

Finding Reliable Information: The Internet offers access to many valuable sources of information. However, not all sources on the Internet provide current, accurate or complete information. We encourage you to be a smart consumer by critically evaluating the information you retrieve online. The Consumer and Patient Health Information Section of the Medical Library Association maintains a list of the Top 100 health websites and provides guidelines to assist you in evaluating the quality of health information.
