    PubMed & NLM Problems!! Posted Monday, July 2, 2012, 8:10 am
    The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Data Center is experiencing
    difficulties due to the intense storm that hit the Washington, DC and
    other local areas Friday night and may be temporarily unable to provide
    full access to NLM databases and Web sites.  NLM staff are working to
    resolve the issue as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience.

    The storm, called a derecho, knocked out power to most of Montgomery
    County, MD, where NLM is located.

    For more information on derechos, see

    PubMed Limits CHANGE Posted Wednesday, May 16, 2012, 11:28 am
    In order to provide users with a more visible and accessible way to narrow PubMed results, the Limits page has been replaced by a Results Filter Sidebar. The filter sidebar options work the same way as the limit selections did; that is, once a filter is selected it will be activated for subsequent searches until the selection is cleared.  You can view an example of the changes at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/mj12/mj12_pm_sidebar.html or watch a YouTube tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGs547njZ7U that demonstrates use of the filter sidebar.
    If you have questions about PubMed searching, please contact one of our librarians.
