Farewell to Gratefully Yours

Hands-On Feature Coming to the NLM Technical Bulletin

Beginning in January 1999, several popular features of Gratefully Yours, a bi-monthly publication originally intended for Grateful Med users, will be published electronically in other NLM publications. The November-December 1998 issue of Gratefully Yours will be the last issue to be printed on paper and mailed to readers.

The Gratefully Yours front page feature article will move to the NLM Newsline, a quarterly newsletter about current events at NLM. The NLM Newsline contains news items and features about NLM products and services of interest to medical librarians and others.

The Hands-On question and answer feature found in Gratefully Yours will be coming here, to the NLM Technical Bulletin. The Hands-On column answers users' questions about features of PubMed and Internet Grateful Med.
