NLM Resource Update: TOXNET

Friday, December 19th, 2014

TOXNET is a group of databases covering chemicals and drugs, diseases and the environment, environmental health, occupational safety and health, poisoning, risk assessment and regulations, and toxicology http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/. TOXNET includes the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) which provides toxicity data for over 5,700 potentially hazardous chemicals. HSDB also has information on emergency handling procedures, industrial hygiene, environmental fate, human exposure, detection methods, and regulatory requirements. HSDB is one of the features of WISER, the Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders http://wiser.nlm.nih.gov/.

Permanent links to National Library of Medicine (NLM) TOXNET records are now provided for HSDB as well asTOXLINE, LactMed, Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology Database (DART), Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD), Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), International Toxicity Estimates for Risk (ITER), Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System (CCRIS), and GENE-TOX. 

To create a permanent link, click on the “Permalink” button found in the upper right of a TOXNET record. This provides a pop-up window with a URL to share or to save for retrieving  the record at a later time.

DOCLINE maintenance & DOCLINE 5.1

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

All,

NLM announces the upcoming release of DOCLINE 5.1 on December 11, 2014. The latest version of DOCLINE will allow libraries to turn off checking LinkOut as the source for embargo periods during routing for all titles.   The global on/off setting is only displayed for LinkOut participants. Additionally, we have added a new summary count of holdings by format and by type of embargo (e.g., LinkOut, manual, none).

To learn more about the upcoming changes, including screenshots, see the Release Notes: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/docline_rel_info_v5_1.html

The Regional Medical Libraries and CISTI have been testing the new version over the past two weeks. They can answer any DOCLINE questions and provide assistance to libraries in their regions.   The vendors (Clio, ILLiad, QuickDOC, and Relais) were given the opportunity to validate their software against DOCLINE 5.1.

We plan to release DOCLINE 5.1 the morning of Thursday, December 11, 2014.

Citation Export Feature now Available

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

PMC is happy to announce the addition of a citation exporter feature. This feature makes it easy to retrieve either styled citations that you can copy/paste into your manuscripts, or to download them into a format compatible with your bibliographic reference manager software.

When viewing an Entrez search results page, each result summary will now include a “Citation” link. When, clicked, this will open a pop-up window that you can use to easily copy/paste citations formatted in one of three popular styles: AMA (American Medical Association), MLA (Modern Library Association, or APA (American Psychological Association). In addition, the box has links at the bottom that can be used to download the citation information in one of three machine-readable formats, which most bibliographic reference management software can import.

The same citation box can also be invoked from an individual article, either in classic view (with the “Citation” link among the list of formats) or the PubReader view, by clicking on the citation information just below the article title in the banner.

These human-readable styled citations, and machine-readable formats, will be available through a public API, and we will be providing more details about that in another announcement, on the pmc-utils-announce mailing list. Please subscribe to that list if you are interested.
