From Library Journal
The latest entry in the "Internet Workshop" series, this tutorial is a double-headed twofer: written for both the healthcare professional and the consumer and designed to be used online as well as in print format. For experienced Internet users, this is a handy reference tool, with pages of health-related sites ready to bookmark. Many are familiar favorites, with a core collection called "PULSEPOINTS" listing URLs for specific topics from AIDS to Telemedicine. Used as a teaching tool, the book provides a welcome outline of Internet basics, including information on browsers, e-mail, chat and discussion groups, search engines and metasites, saving and printing web pages, etc., before moving into an explanation of how to find and evaluate reliable healthcare information. A companion online workshop mirroring the print edition is included with purchase [good for six months], allowing the novice searcher to practice "live"Dwith or without the textDand giving the user a true hands-on, self-paced experience that reinforces the lessons in each section. Kovacs and Carlson, expert Internet trainers, have created a unique guide that can serve as a refresher course for experienced users and as an easy-to-follow introduction for the novice. Recommended for both professional library collections and the consumer health shelf. Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hosp. Lib., NY
