Author: Cummings, Martin Marc, 1920-2011
Title: The Role of the National Library of Medicine in Biomedical Communications, 1964
Occasion: Presented at the 21st annual meeting of the American Medical Writers Association, Benjamin Franklin Hotel, Philadelphia, Pa.
MMC Commentary: I see the publication in the Annals of New York Academy of Sciences as a formal description of the National Library of Medicine. The article includes diagrams related to the procedures of MEDLARS, the Biomedical Network Concept, the departments of the Center for Biomedical Communications, the National Library of Medicine's vision on the Geographic Dissemination of Biomedical Information, and the National Library of Medicine's mission -- oriented dissemination of bibliographic information.
