I am senior editor of Library Journal's Book Review  in charge of assigning  medical and consumer health titles for review. I am now looking for librarians interested in  writing for Library Journal. I especially need reviewers for books on  women's health, alternative medicine, infertility issues, gerontology, head injuries, asthma and allergies, diet and nutrition, cancer, etc.  I also need general science reviewers.
       If you can write well, and want to contribute to your profession, please complete the following application and e-mail it (along with a brief review of a book you recently read)  to me at [log in to unmask] We cannot pay you but you will have the pleasure of seeing your name in print and  a free copy of the book.  If you have further questions, you can e-mail me or call me at 212-463-6472.
