References found in AIDSLINE are taken from a variety of National Library of Medicine databases, including MEDLINE, Health Planning and Administration (HEALTH), CANCERLIT, CATLINE, and AVLINE
. Also included are meeting abstracts from the Fifth through the Eighth International Conferences on AIDS, the 90th and the 91st Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS, and, when appropriate, the 1990 and the 1991 annual meetings of the American Society for Microbiology.
But many searchers have not yet tried other MEDLARS databases such as AIDSLINE (bibliographic references), DIRLINE (Directory of Information Resources), AVLINE
(audiovisuals), HISTLINE (history of medicine), or SDILINE (current months input into MEDLINE).
