Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Intended for an audience of teachers, librarians, health professionals, and the general public, this up-to-date directory compiles sources of free material on health. The subject matter covers 512 topics from the prosaic to the more complex, from air quality, drug abuse, and nutrition to brain and spinal cord tumors, fetal alcohol syndrome, and reconstructive plastic surgery. Drawing on the same kinds of organizations as Susan Detwiler's Detwiler's Directory of Health and Medical Resources (LJ 6/15/98), this volume is similar in content but with a different emphasis. By its own admission, though, its coverage is limited. Entries, many of which recur under various topics, list mailing addresses and phone and FAX numbers followed by descriptions of obtainable materials with titles, page counts, costs (if any), and formats included. While most of the data are available elsewhere, this reference may be convenient for those seeking to supplement standard resources. For all health collections.--Marilyn Rosenthal, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
