Sorry for my very poorly written email that I sent out to the list, I
did it on my iPhone which isn't integrated into our email system and the
autocorrect makes some interesting changes.

Another thought occurred to me about LinkOut.  Jon are talking about
straight LinkOut where the librarian goes through and selects individual
titles available through the library?  Or are you talking about LinkOut
Outside Tool where libraries can set up their link resolvers to do the
LinkOut work?  I originally jumped to the conclusion that you talking
about both but now that I am going through my emails from last week (my
power was out) I realize I could have been off and you meant plain old

Subject: Is PubMed LinkOut popular?


I'm wondering if there are any figures as to how popular PubMed LinkOut
I'm trying to get proportion figures e.g. is it used in 1%, 10%, 25% etc
medical libraries in the USA?

Best wishes
