- As already described, MEDLINE is
NLM's premier bibliographic database.
- After Medical Subject Headings (NLM's controlled vocabulary terms) and other indexing terms are added, the In Process citations graduate to MEDLINE records. These "completed" records have also been checked for bibliographic accuracy.
- Each MEDLINE record is identified with a PMID and the status tag [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE].
