Submitter: I pulled this book because of its age. I have included a picture that discusses different insulin pumps, most of which don’t exist anymore. One of the companies has exited the insulin pump business. There are several new companies and insulin pumps with new technologies that are covered in new books. If I were looking for information about medical devices, and all I could find is an old book, I’d be upset. Chronic illnesses are stressful enough, please make sure that you have up to date books.
Holly: When people come to the library with a diagnosis, or a plan for a new treatment, it means that they trusted us to have the information that they needed. They thought to themselves, “The library will have just what I need!” If we hand them something this old, and this unhelpful, we have failed them and they have no reason to trust us anymore. Libraries have a hard enough time marketing ourselves as relevant. Don’t make it worse.
