Swine Flu Information via iGoogle Tab

With the National Health Alert about swine flu in the United States, the Health Sciences Libraries are working on a guide to information and resources of help to our clinicians and our public. While we are working quickly on making that available, please feel free to use this in the meantime.

iGoogle Tab: Swine Flu

1. Create or login to your Google account (also known as GMail or iGoogle account).

2. From the Google homepage, click on the iGoogle link in the upper right hand corner.

3. Click on the link above or here for the Swine Flu Information iGoogle Tab.

4. Answer yes to add this to your iGoogle settings.

Last week we had a class on using iGoogle tabs to manage personal and professional information (Slides here). You can find more information there on using iGoogle.
