Appeared in Choice on 1987-10:
In a recent publishing trend, computer-stored files are turned into books, or ideas for books. Federal Health Information Resources (FHIR) clearly derives from DIRLINE (Directory of Information Resources Online), developed by the former National Referral Center of the Library of Congress and now accessible through the National Library of Medicine's MEDLARS component. DIRLINE is also the basis for the National Health Information Clearinghouse's Health Information Resources in the Federal Government (3rd ed., 1985). A related title, Anthony T. Kruzas's Health Services Directory (1981) is a dated but more comprehensive work. Enhanced and updated with information from additional federal sources, FHIR is a biomedical and health information awareness tool with a topical table of contents and agency, subject, and title indexes. Annotations for each entry cover agency services, databases and publications. A second edition is planned for 1989. For readers in allied health professions and medical libraries.-J.W. Galloway, Texas Woman's University
