Now, after almost a decade, a new edition of "the standard guide to health science sources is available for students, librarians, and health professionals. Prepared under the auspices of the Medical Library Association, this completely updated and comprehensive fourth edition discusses the various kinds of bibliographic and information sources and their use in health sciences and provides a comparative approach to major tools and their use. Individual chapters cover: organization of reference collections; bibliographic sources for monographs and periodicals; indexing and abstracting resources; U.S. government documents and technical reports; conferences, reviews, and translations; dictionaries, terminology, and thesauri; handbooks and manuals; drug information sources; consumer health, medical, and health statistics; directories and biographical sources; history sources; and grant sources. This new edition also emphasizes the growth of electronic resources and how they are used in conjunction with print sources.
