The American College of Physicians has compiled its ninth library of reference materials designed to help internists and community libraries acquire and apply current knowledge in internal medicine. The Library for Internists began as a compilation of printed materials, but now that powerful computers and computer networks have become ubiquitous, its character is changing to include electronic information resources that will eventually compose a virtual medical library.
