Cool Tools

David Rothman, who manages the medical library at Community General Hospital, also runs a highly popular blog about medical information. He informs and advises health care professionals about the sources and uses of medical information...and he does so in a cool way.

Now, with co-authors Melissa Rethlefsen and Daniel Mojon, David has written Internet Cool Tools for Physicians. The book is helpful, not just for physicians, but for anyone. It makes available the useful advice David provides daily as he helps us get the most out of the Internet.

David first encouraged, then helped, me to set up this blog about 18 months ago. The popularity of his own blog, Exploring Medical Librarianship and Web Geekery, far exceeds my own. As a result, he has been invited to speak at professional colloquia across the country. Click here for some of the praises David's blog has received from the medical information community.

David tells me "Cool Tools..." is now available in Europe and coming soon to the US. You may order it on line at Amazon or directly from Springer, one of the world’s largest publishers of journals in science, technology, and medicine.

Congratulations, David, to you and your fellow authors.
