Health Information - New Possibilities
The 1994 conference of the European Association for Health Information and Libraries drew together an exceptional group of invited speakers and contributed papers. They represent a summary of the developments in libraries and information services in the medical and health areas. Most of the themes featured in the book concentrate on the important growth areas of the profession: computer-based information services, networking (especially the Internet), and CD-ROMs. The text contains interesting contributions on identifying the needs of library users and evaluating how well these are being met. There is also a section on the history of medicine.
