"Questions about health and medicine are very common at the reference desk, and librarians not familiar with these topics often feel challenged when they need to assist patrons with these queries … this is a useful resource for those in need of an overview of medical reference and should be considered by academic, public, and special librarians in the health sciences."
"Well organized and authoritative."
