• Derm Lit is a service providing bibliograpohies prepared by computer from a file of the four basic English language dermatology journals beginning with January 1969 and including the current issues. An abstract of each article cited is returned with the report. Both the title and the abstract of each article in the file is searched for the word, words, or phrases requested by the user. In the year since DermLit was introduced, more than 1,600 searches have been performed for dermatologists all over the United States and Canada. The service is used primarily by dermatologists away from the large teaching centers. The topics of the search requests cover the entire field of dermatology.
