I’ve written another post at Circulating Now, the NLM blog on history of medicine. This one is titled, “MEDLARS II: MEDLINE & Instantaneous Search.”

Before the Internet, there were other computer networks, and I’ve highlighted how NLM was able to provide for online bibliographic searches, starting in 1970.
