Grateful Med is not exactly a reference program. It's a specialized
communications application that allows you to connect to the NLM (National
Library of Medicine) computer to perform searches of current scientific
literature. You are charged for NLM computer connect time.
It sounds like you're looking for something more like the Mayo Clinic
CD-ROM or another such family medical reference CD. Check with any of the
CD-ROM or computer catalog mail order companies. One such company is
Educorp at (800) 843-9497. They can send a catalog to you.
Hope this helps.
