The National Library of Medicine will discontinue its Z39.50 server to the MEDLINE data (back to 1966) and the PREMEDLINE data effective December 13, 1999.  MEDLINE/HealthSTAR is offered to UC users as a CDL-hosted database and will not be affected by this change.  PREMEDLINE, however, will be discontinued.

NLM provides free Web access to all its databases and users have been encouraged to transition to the Web for more than a year.  PubMed, Internet Grateful Med, LOCATORplus, and TOXNET on the Web provide free access using state-of-the-art search engines [].  Please direct questions to NLM Customer Service at:

Users will also note that Pubmed is listed in the CDL Directory.
