    Subject: important MEDLINE update
    To: NEUROMUS@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU

    NeuroMus subscribers,

    The US government's National Library of Medicine recently made two
    significant announcements which were, unfortunately, eclipsed by Mike
    Tyson's late-night "snack". MEDLINE is now available through the NLM's
    website for *no* charge. This is a significant departure from the NLM's
    previous fee-based system... and from the "watered-down", but free,
    versions of MEDLINE that several vendors made available. This new, free
    service does not even require registration for the web user.

    NLM also announced a new experimental system for searching MEDLINE, =
    where
    users can be linked to the web sites of publishers, enabling the =
    retrieval
    of full text articles. This service, called PUBMED, offers a variety of
    display formats and printing/saving, including importing into
    bibliographic manager programs. Preformatted searches can also be
    performed; simply find an article/abstract of interest, and select
    "related articles". The service is free and does not require
    registration.

    PUBMED: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
