Searching for Meeting Abstracts

For those of you who are interested in locating meeting abstracts, always a difficult task, try the NLM Gateway.

Over 98% of the Meeting Abstracts in the NLM Gateway now include the conference name in the record. All of the meeting abstracts from a particular conference can be retrieved by searching the conference name. Use the new field qualifier [CN] (which will also search the Corporate Author in Meeting Abstracts, PubMed, and NLM Catalog).

For detailed information on the exact steps, see the Gateway FAQ: How do I search for abstracts from a particular professional conference?

From the NLM Technical Bulletin, Jan-Feb 2006, Technical Notes: NLM Gateway Enhances Search and Display of Meeting Abstracts.
