The fourth volume of the fourth series of the Index Catalogue of the Surgeon-General's Office covers the letter D. The Surgeon-General's Library now contains approximately 409,223 volumes, 377 pamphlets and almost 200,000 theses. About 18,000 new items are added to the library each year. Recently the subscriptions of the library have been extended by some 200 new medical journals, of which approximately 50 per cent are South American and 15 per cent from soviet Russia. This work has long been known as a competent index to the material that it covers. In the current issue the headings dementia, dentistry, digestive tract, disability and drugs as well as dermatitis, diabetes, diarrhea and diet indicate the importance of the letter D in any medical classification.
