I wonder if there are any other medical librarians out there who are in
the habit of researching the story lines behind House? I had so much fun
(especially the first 2 seasons) tracking down the obscure case reports
that the writers used to inform the story line. Needless to say, not all
of my (non-librarian) friends are as enthralled with my hobby but it
does make for some great conversations with the medical staff here in
the hospital!

In a previous life as a public librarian one of our reference sources
sent out a special alert every Mon. morning with citations for
information of condition covered in latest Marcus Welby.  It seems that
people were calling public libraries concerned just as your patron.  The
reference service used the alert as part of their sales pitch.
