Can any one suggest an alternative Dewey call number for "patient
Information" type publications. i.e. books that health professionals would
use to show, or copy, to give to their clients, which explains medical
syndromes or treatment in lay terminology.
 
The Lib-of-Cong. suggest 615.5... But this places those texts in the middle
of the pharmacology/drugs area- which doesnt seem right.
 
The other alternative is to place it in the 616 area of general
medicine - put this places it amongst the student and postgrad medicine
texts such as Harrison's.
 
If anyone has solved this issue, could you let me know personally on the
following e-mail address
