Did I miss an announcement from NLM?  Why is the 1998 "Brandon-Hill
selected list of nursing books and journals" not indexed in MEDLINE?

The articles before and after it in _Nursing Outlook_ were indexed, so
it is not that they have stopped indexing the journal.

Is this NOT the article I think it is?  The equivalent of the B-H small
medical library list in _BMLA_?

I thought I remembered some gossip about the list changing journals or
maybe not continuing so I had given up hope of finding a 98 version when
I saw a reference to it in an Amazon.Com author's comment on a nursing
book.  After months of searching MEDLINE and the Web it finally dawned
on me that CINAHL was the obvious place to look.  I rarely have a need
to search CINAHL so I rarely think of it, assuming that all the basic
nursing journals I need/have easy access to are in MEDLINE.   Now I find
that a basic bibliography for hospital librarians is no longer being
included in MEDLINE.  Why?  What else is not there?
