Title: The National Library of Medicine and Information on Drugs, 1964
Occasion: Read at the 148th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, Chicago, Ill.
MMC Commentary: This speech was read at the meeting of the American Chemical Society. The National Library of Medicine had developed a collective agreement with the Food and Drug Administration. The technical competence of the FDA was applied to the indexing of the published literature concerned with drugs. In return the National Library of Medicine provided demand searches and Recurring Bibliographies to the FDA. The NLM aim was to provide the "first cut" of the literature that would make it possible for groups with special interests to do the refined analysis required to meet their particular needs.
