Directory of Info Resources (DIRLINE)

DIRLINE (Directory of Information Resources Online) is the National Library of Medicine's online database containing location and descriptive information about a wide variety of information resources including organizations, research resources, projects, and databases concerned with health and biomedicine. Each record may contain information on the publications, holdings, and services provided.

DIRLINE contains over 8,000 records and focuses primarily on health and biomedicine, although it also provides limited coverage of some other special interests.

Topics include HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, most diseases and conditions including genetic and other rare diseases, health services research and technology assessment.
