These are basically word lists related to several branches of medicine
most useful for medical transcriptionists as resources for finding the
correct spelling.  This would be similar to the Laboratory Medicine book
I submitted a few weeks ago.

That is quite a chore, but a valuable asset to the
collection for students and parents. I'm not exactly
sure what kind of books you mean, but if they are
medical dictionaries like Dorland's, as a parent and
tv-watcher I've used the books I have, both
dictionaries and encyclopedia-types, often through the
years.
