NLM Launches NLM Catalog
NLM is pleased to announce the debut of the NLM Catalog, a new Entrez database. The NLM Catalog provides access to NLM bibliographic data for over 1.2 million journals, books, audiovisuals, computer software, electronic resources, and other materials via the NCBI Entrez retrieval system. Supporting automated mapping features such as explosions on MeSH terms, the new database is an alternate search interface to the bibliographic records resident in LocatorPlus. The NLM Catalog is available at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi from the "Search" pull-down menu and from the PubMed sidebar. It is also a hyperlink under "Library Catalogs and Services" on the NLM homepage.
For further information about the new database, see the overview at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query/static/nlmcat_help.html#overview .
