Friday Fun: NLM Milestones

According to the Technical Bulletin, PubMed has added its 20 millionth citation and PubMed Central has logged its 2 millionth article.

I almost feel like their should be some balloons falling from the ceiling, noise makers whistling, and confetti and streamers flying about to celebrate the occasion.  Perhaps this is because I am a nerdy librarian who thinks 20 million citations is cool.  Or it could be because I missed the party entirely (the bulletin mentions this actually happened in July.) Oh well.

Happy Belated 20 Millionth!
