ST. LOUIS, Missouri, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Increases Accessibility to Market-Leading Specialty Content

Elsevier, the world's leading publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, announced today that ten new eBook Specialty Collections have launched on MD Consult (http://www.mdconsult.com), its online clinical reference tool. This launch provides online availability of market-leading specialty content in Dermatology, Dermatologic Surgery, Family Medicine, General Radiology, Geriatric Medicine, Hand Surgery, Neonatology, Otolaryngology, Pathology, and Shoulder Surgery.

"The inclusion of these eBook Specialty Collections on MD Consult allows clinical institutions across the world to select from a compelling array of key brands and current titles that meet the needs of medical specialists underserved by other online medical resources," commented Randy Charles, Managing Director, Global Clinical Reference, Health Sciences.

Elsevier's health science books are published under the imprints W.B. Saunders, Mosby, Churchill Livingstone, and Hanley & Belfus, publishers with a rich medical and health science publishing heritage dating back to 1688.

Mike Takats, Vice President, MD Consult, added "These collections make much more specialty and subspecialty knowledge readily available to institutions and physicians, and ultimately should help to improve the quality of medical and surgical care around the world. Our customers have been asking for a greater variety of the Elsevier books they already know and trust and now we can meet that need."

The addition of these new specialty collections follows the successful launch of five new eBook collections in September 2008, covering content in Anesthesia, Critical Care, Hospital Medicine, Netter's Orthopaedics, and Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. By the end of 2009, more than 400 new specialty titles will be available as part of MD Consult eBook Specialty Collections, contributing to the evolution of the MD Consult platform into the most comprehensive and authoritative resource for medical information in all medical specialties.
