There are a number of medical libraries around the world that are
exceptionally short of funds but in need of info. that may help save lives
and educate aspiring physicians.  Would this neurologist consider making
his books available to a medical library overseas, in one of the more
impoverished countries where the need is greatest?  If so, he could browse
through International Medical Libraries on the Web Ring:

Sometimes there is funding available to support shipping.
