Merck has created The Merck Manuals, a series of health care books for medical professionals and consumers. As a service to the community, the content of The Manuals is now available in enhanced online versions as part of The Merck Manuals Online Medical Library. The Online Medical Library is updated periodically with new information, and contains photographs, and audio and video material not present in the print versions.
(I have linked to the Psychiatric Disorder part of the manuals, but there are other medical disorders listed as well–see left hand side toolbar if interested.)
