Editorial Reviews


"Every library (personal, institutional, or public) should have this volume available."
-TOXICOLOGY LETTERS (September 2000)
"The editors have taken on the herculean task of concisely describing essential worldwide toxicological information resources. The book really has no peers in toxicological publishing and should find a useful place on the reference shelf of toxicologists, allied professions, and information professionals. A particular feature of this third edition is coverage of digital and electronic information resources. Increased interest in environmental and risk assessment issues are also evident and new to this edition. With more public and government awareness of toxicology in general and the attendant growth of digital and electronic resources, a fourth edition probably looms on the horizon."
-DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
This book has everthing you need to begin researching anything toxicology related. Whether you need to find a certain book, newsletter, journal, video, organization, or whatever...this book is all you need to get started!! I used it in the library on campus and I just had to buy it. I only wish I'd come across this book sooner. I could have saved so much time. There's even a chapter on colleges that have toxicology programs and a career outlook section. The chapter on organizations is nothing short of amazing. It truly is a comprehensive guide that works!! If you are a toxicologist you really ought to have this book.
