    I read an interesting post from Resource Shelf that both Google and Bing offer proximity searching. I've been quite out of touch as this has been available in Google for over five years!

    The operator for Google is AROUND(x). Example: Librarians AROUND (5) awesome should find instances where 'librarians' and 'awesome' occur within five words of each other.

    The operator for Bing is near:(x) Bing has quite a few other advanced search options that I wasn't aware of. Worth checking out.

    As posted in an NLM Technical Bulletin last week, the Journals Database is going to merge with the NLM catalog. This is somewhat traumatic news to me as I use the Journals Database in PubMed all the time, but it might be a good thing.

    The article includes more information and screen shots.

    If you didn't get the chance to listen live to the NLM lecture on MeSH, a recording is now available.

    Have you voted for the new HealthLINE officers? If not, you have until November 3rd. With our group, your vote really counts!
