A Guide for the Prospective Mother with Diabetes

Isn’t this an attractive looking book? I think the excessive tape and dirt also add to its ambiance.┬áThe big question is why is it still in a public library health collection? I hate to go off on a rant, but this just kills me. Hopefully this was a book that fell through the cracks and isn’t indicative of the rest of the health collection. Seriously, this is NOT better than nothing.

I would also like to suggest that department heads and directors seriously look at data regarding the age. Median age and average are good tools for evaluating collections. If your staff aren’t getting this done, especially in time sensitive collections like medical and legal information, please get with them and re-prioritize collection maintenance tasks. Don’t let this book happen to you!
