This guide was produced by the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) library to bring together resources on cancer research that are relevant to firefighters and emergency responders. On these pages, you will find links and information available at IFSI, as well as a list of relevant IFSI library items. The tabs on this guide include links to digital resources, reports, and news articles covering cancer research in the fire service, and an overview of current studies.
The Illinois Fire Service Institute Library contains books, codes and standards, DVDs, CDs, periodicals, manuals, e-resources, audiobooks, and other fire emergency resources, totaling over 65,000 items. We serve all first responders in the state of Illinois. Materials can be requested in person, by phone or email, or online through our catalog. You can search our catalog by title, author, keyword, subject, or publisher, and choose the formats you want to see. Enter as few or as many search terms as you would like; the more search terms you use the fewer results you'll get, but the results will be more specific. If you live in Illinois and have a public library card, we can send materials to your public library via interlibrary loan. Anyone is also welcome to visit us in person!
The following articles can be accessed on-site at the IFSI Library. IFSI employees can access the articles remotely with the UIUC NET ID and password. Non-IFSI/UI employees will have to request copies of the articles via interlibrary loan from their home public library. If you have questions about accessing these articles, please contact the IFSI Library.
