CANCERLIT® and PDQ® To Be Removed from the NLM Databases - Available from NCI's Web Site

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), together with the National Library of Medicine (NLM), has decided to cease including direct MEDLARS access to CANCERLIT and PDQ. These databases will no longer be available on the NLM computer effective December 14, 1998, the date that NLM will bring up its 1999 system. When CANCERLIT is withdrawn, it will contain data through its 9811 Entry Month. Accordingly, NLM will also discontinue leasing CANCERLIT.

PDQ information and the CANCERLIT database are available on the NCI's CancerNet (TM) Web site Searchers do not need to wait until December to acquaint themselves with the search features that CancerNet offers for these databases. You can visit this Web site now. You also can access these databases through one of the NCI's licensing partners.
