DIRLINE Ends Its 30 Year Run

DIRLINE Ends Its 30 Year Run. NLM Tech Bull. 2013 Nov-Dec;(395):b3.

2013 December 02 [posted]

Due to a changing technical and budgetary environment, the Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) is no longer adding, updating or maintaining records in DIRLINE.

As of October 1, 2013, and for the following fiscal year, DIRLINE is searchable but the records are marked as ”archived” (see Figure 1). SIS expects to retire DIRLINE at the end of 2014. These changes do not affect Health Hotlines.
