Over the past 12 months, we have received 15 titles in Laboratory Medicine or Laboratory Technology, most of them from Elsevier and Springer, with one from Caister Academic Press. However, the just-published Doody’s Core Titles 2016 includes 27 titles in Laboratory Medicine and 27 titles in Laboratory Technology, with seven titles appearing on both lists. Laboratory Medicine has seven Essential Purchase titles, while Laboratory Technology has nine. The 11 titles we received last year in Laboratory Medicine ranged in price from $46.00 to $299.00, for an average price of $130.08. In contrast, prices for the four books in Laboratory Technology ranged from $64.95 to $122.00, for an average price of $85.97, which is understandable considering the differing needs of the two audiences. Combining the two specialties yields an average price of $118.32.
