Education Related Resources at NLM
Specialized Information Services (SIS)
Specialized Information Services (SIS) produces information resources on a range of topics covering toxicology, environmental health, HIV/AIDS, drug and consumer product information, and disaster/emergency preparedness and response.
SIS produces the AIDSource site with access to a comprehensive list of HIV/AIDS-related resources within and outside of the National Library of Medicine. The site includes HIV/AIDS programs, model resources, multimedia, prevention, research, and other related resources. Among these related resources are links to government websites for various targeted groups including educators, health professionals, and scientists, as well as a searchable database of relevant AIDS information.
PubMed Central (PMC)
PubMed Central (PMC) is a free archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM). In keeping with NLM’s legislative mandate to collect and preserve the biomedical literature, PMC serves as a digital counterpart to NLM’s extensive print journal collection. Launched in February 2000, PMC was developed and is managed by NLM’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
Here are a small selection of articles from the PMC site related to HIV/AIDS research and findings from the 1980s and 1990s.
