  2. Presentations • David Gillikin, Online Update • Joyce Backus, MedlinePlus • Maria Collins, DOCLINE • Questions

  3. Indexing • FY2006 • 629,000 indexed citations added to MEDLINE. • Highest ever indexing rate (last year was 606,596 indexed citations). • 46,918 gene indexing links created (4% increase from last year). • FY2007 • 175,177 citations indexed in during the 2nd quarter, at a rate of over 700,000 articles per year. • More than 85% of MEDLINE citations now supplied electronically by publishers.

  4. Indexing • New Web-based training program for MEDLINE indexing is the primary instruction method for new indexers. • A version for end-user access to be provided by early summer.

  5. Indexing • Electronic Journal Indexing • 120 online-only journals indexed for MEDLINE, an increase from 107 a year ago. • 276 additional journals - the online version is indexed instead of the print version.

  6. Indexing • Kennedy Institute of Ethics (KIE) - Bioethics data: • NLM supplies over 85% of the bioethics citations creation and indexing. • Contract reduction due to budgetary constraints. • NLM continues to provide funding to support the National Reference Center for Bioethics Literature at KIE; it offers search systems and other services for bioethics literature and their own collection.

  7. Bioethics Information Resources • Web resource developed to provide additional support to the subject of bioethics. • www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/bioethics.html • Main links on: • PubMed Special Queries page. • List of NLM Databases and Resources on the NLM Home page.

  8. OLDMEDLINE • Mapping OLDMEDLINE Keywords to current MeSH: • 76% of citations mapped completely (over 1.34 million citations). • These completed records are now converted to the status [PubMed – Indexed for MEDLINE]. • Work continues on mapping the additional keywords. • Conversion of the citations from the 1949 Current List of Medical Literature (CLML) has begun.

  9. PubMed • PubMed – surpassed 17 million records • MEDLINE – over 15.8 million (93%) • In Process records – over 252,000 (1.5%) • OLDMEDLINE – over 420,000 (2.5%) • PubMed-only records – over 524,000 (3%)

  10. PubMed • Usage continues to grow • Searches by Unique IPs • March 2006 : Nearly 9.8 million unique IPs • March 2007: Nearly 11.8 million unique IPs • Total number of searches • March 2006: Over 82.0 million searches • March 2007: Over 82.3 million searches • Page views • March 2006: Over 377 million page views • March 2007: Over 423 million page views

  11. PubMed Enhancements • New version of the Entrez system being developed. • Beta version made available for review this spring. • New system to be coming online soon. • Foundation for the next generation of features and capabilities on Entrez databases, including PubMed.

  12. PubMed Enhancements • AbstractPlus view • New default view • Single citation display – customizable selection using My NCBI • Library icons • New system version displays a single library icon in upper right hand corner – different size (100 pixels x 25 pixels) • If users activate more than one icon, the icon displayed at the top will be selected according to the following priority: • Library LinkOut full text icon • Library LinkOut print icon • Outside Tool icon

  14. PubMed Central • Number of unique IPs searching PMC: • Tremendous growth in searching. • April = 4,290,400. • March = 3,290,615. • Statistics as of May 1: • 331 journals participating in PMC (249 last year). • Covering over 969,278 articles (675,00 last year). • Announcements of new PMC titles and coverage appear regularly in the NLM Technical Bulletin.
