ICD-10:  The Library has a separate subscription to the ICD-10 draft Clinical Modification and Procedure Coding System documents. Stat!Ref could not integrate our individual subscriptions into the larger database platform accessed by all participating libraries statewide, so these two items are best located by using the e-books tab of the A-Z list (just input "icd 10" and these titles will come to the top) or by searching the library catalog for ICD-10. We hope that in mid-2014 the ICD-10 resources will be included in the statewide subscription.
