In 2003, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) created the Journal Archiving and Interchange DTD as a common format for medical journal articles. Used for various different types of journals and books (many of which have nothing to do with medical literature), the NLM DTD provides a useful structure for almost any kind of full-text article. It has been called the de facto
standard DTD for full-text publishing.
Developed in response to publishers’ needs, the NLM DTD provides a flexible and well-tested structure that can accommodate many content anomalies without needing to be customized. The NLM DTD is well known and widely used, and it allows for the creation of rich custom metadata.

- HOW DOES A LIBRARY GO ELECTRONIC?
When Congress issued a directive dictating that the National Library of Medicine digitize its entire collection, Library management knew that they faced a formidable task. But rather than stick their head in the sand and hope that it all worked out, management did a serious analysis of the task and the options available to accomplish it. Maureen Prettyman of NLM spoke to InfoWorld about the approach they took. (5/2000)
