New on the library shelves is Attorney’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary. Written for attorneys, researchers, and anyone looking to understand medical terminology, this dictionary has over 30,000 terms, defined using simple rather than overly technical words that would require an additional resource to decipher. The illustrations are well-delineated with defined terms highlighted with red ink and arrows and lines indicating important aspects of the drawings.  Appendices provide useful information such as abbreviations and symbols commonly used in medicine, reference values for laboratory tests of clinical importance, and an index to the illustrations. Various tables and illustrative plates are peppered throughout the book, offering the reader even more assistance with wading through complex medical concepts and terms.
