The IEEE Biomedical Engineering Library, an online subscription collection
of 30,000 key scientific articles available, will be available in 2003.
This online database will provide pharmaceutical companies, medical device
manufacturers and others access to biotechnology and biomedical papers
published by IEEE in its journals, magazines and conference proceedings.
Included are papers pre-selected based on relevant INSPEC(TM)
classification codes and index terms. The collection also includes relevant
IEEE standards.

Content in the IEEE Biomedical Engineering Library will be available in
full-text PDF format, with associated abstract records. Users will have the
ability to search and browse by subject term.
