From the NLM Technical Bulletin announcement:
“On December 13, 2010, NLM launched a redesigned NLM Catalog that implements new search and display options related to journal searching. Most of these options were originally available in the now retired Entrez Journals Database. The new options are available either from Limits or directly in the search box. In addition, NLM Catalog has a new display format available for those journals cited in Entrez databases, called Journal, that will include all the MEDLINE® indexing related data from the old Journals Database…”

ARL Releases New Guide and Launches Online Forum for Libraries Supporting the NSF Data Sharing Policy

Association of Research Libraries
Washington DC—The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has released a new resource for libraries supporting the recently revised NSF Data Sharing Policy. The Guide for Research Libraries: The NSF Data Sharing Policy, by Patricia Hswe and Ann Holt, is a set of Web-based resources that introduces and explains the policy. Hswe and Holt also offer advice for library professionals who work with researchers seeking funding and provide links to a range of resources that have been created by ARL member libraries and others.
The Guide’s authors are actively seeking information on additional resources libraries are creating. The Google group, ARL Data Sharing Support Group, has been established as a contact point for librarians interested in sharing and exchanging information on their efforts to advance and support researchers creating data management and sharing plans. Individuals can join the group by emailing http://groups.google.com/group/arl-data-sharing-support-group.
The Guide for Research Libraries: The NSF Data Sharing Policy is freely accessible at http://www.arl.org/rtl/eresearch/escien/nsf/index.shtml
