STAMA - National Library of Medicine's Profiles in Science

Apologies for x-postings:

The National Library of Medicine's Profiles in Science site, a digital
archive of distinguished biomedical researchers, is going to expand soon in
two ways, 

By about November 5, we will be adding a new site devoted to Dr. Martin
Rodbell, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology in 1994 for his
work in signal transduction in cells and the discovery of the role of
"G-proteins" in this mechanism.

In the month of November we will be releasing many more documents scanned
from the Joshua Lederberg Papers.  This site was released to the public in
March 1999, as an exhibit site with some documents directly addressable
from the exhibit, but many more reachable through three different search
and display engines.  This new release will add several hundred new
documents in this latter, "behind-the-scenes" manner.

Our posting just closed for the position of Digital Manuscripts Program
Manager/Senior Archivist for Digital Projects, and we hope to fill the
position by the end of the calendar year.

The Profiles in Science site address is http://www.profiles.nlm.nih.gov/
