Historical Note

The Army Medical Library's Committee of Consultants for the Study of the Indexes to Medical Literature first met in September 1948. Its mandate was to study the Library's four indices - Index Catalogue, Index Medicus, Quarterly Cumulative Index Medicus, and Current List of Medical Literature - and determine whether they should be modified or eliminated in light of the demands of modern medical indexing. Its last meeting was in May 1952.
