A useful list to aid the selection of materials, but with an American emphasis. This list of 630 books and 143 journals is intended as a selection guide for health sciences libraries or similar facilities. It can also function as a core collection for a library consortium. Books and journals are categorised by subject; the book list is followed by an author/editor index, and the subject list of journals, by an alphabetical title listing. A 'minimal core list' consisting of 81 titles has been pulled out from the 217 asterisked (*) initial-purchase books and marked with daggers (+*) before the asterisks.
