Dear Health Hotline User:
Do you like Health Hotlines? If you find this brochure
useful, you may also appreciate searching this database on
the NLM web site (http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/hotlines/).
You can search by choosing a term from a subject list
describing the major focus of the resource, or by key words
you think might appear in the name or description of the
organization. You can also search by city, state, or ZIP
code.
You may also find DIRLINE (Directory of Information
Resources Online) even more useful. Toll-free numbers
in Health Hotlines are taken from this comprehensive
database of more than 9,000 records, containing location
and descriptive information about a wide variety of
information resources in the fields of health and biomedicine.
DIRLINE is available on the NLM Web site at
http://dirline.nlm.nih.gov. Remember, Health
Hotlines contains only a small percentage of the useful
information available in DIRLINE.
