Global Guide to Medical Information

by George Thomas Kurian

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Although Kurian's latest work collects over 13,000 items of interest to medical researchers, uneven access and lack of detail limit its usefulness. Symposia, conference series, periodicals, and international, regional, and national organizations are arranged by subject; research institutes and medical publishers geographically; online databases, indexes, bibliographies, and statistical sources alphabetically by title. No indexing is provided. Kurian's entries are limited in detaile.g., in the national associations section, only name and city (not state) are providedand most topics are better covered in standard general sources (e.g., periodicals in The Serials Directory see ``Magazines,'' LJ 10/1/87 and Ulrich's Bowker) or specialized sources (e.g., Medical Research Centres (Longman, dist. by Gale, 1986. 7th ed.). Not recommended. Robert Aken, Univ. of Kentucky Libs., Lexington
