International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    A search for "chronic fatigue syndrome" yields the following: http://vsearch.nlm.nih.gov/vivisimo/cgi-bin/query-meta?v:project=nlm-main-website&query="chronic fatigue syndrome"&x=24&y=15 (link seems to work despite the smiling intruder)

    --which I've only glanced through. But I wondered if those who are knowledgeable about ME literature might say what books/work they believe should be in this library (if this hasn't already been done?). For example, is the IOM report part of the library?

    Or is there anything that's not biomedical and therefore should not be housed in this biomedical library? (2005 Dutch report? "CFS has been the subject of extensive study over the past 15 years. Within the scientific community, this has led to widespread support for the view that a strict biomedical perspective will not suffice and that the only fruitful approach is a "biopsychosocial" one..." / I don't know the significance of the search results, but this Dutch book/report came up as number 3.)

    And I suppose a variety of other search terms should be tried.

    Maybe a list of recommended books/work could be submitted to CFSAC for their opinion and then recommendation to the library that such books/work be added.

    Thoughts/opinions? (Thank you!)
