Abstract

In this manual, record librarians are given a brief history of medical records and an analysis of the use and value of the medical records and procedures in the medical records department such as organization and management, storage and cross indexing. Qualifications and training of the medical records librarian are discussed and certain of the so-called secondary duties of medical records librarians. There is little doubt that a book of this kind is needed, but it is the reviewer's belief that a considerable amount of obsolete material is included and that somewhat greater emphasis should be given toward the more modern methods and less space occupied in describing those procedures which can no longer be considered up to date.
