However on the question of the RR and SS 'supplements' you can check the MMWR home page. Because it is U.S. Gov't publication, there is no need for password access. You might check those specific issues to see where the full text ends on your print copy , and compare with the web issue. Try www.cdc.gov and then go from there. Will look at my issues Monday.

I've been wondering (probably too late to do anything constructive about it) if others have blank pages instead of text for the following: MMWR, Vol. 47, #36 p. 764; #37, p. 788; and #38, pp. 815-816. (Issue dates Sept. 18, Sept. 25, & Oct. 2, 1998) When I claimed them I received duplicates of two of the problematic copies (never even rec'd. another of the third) and they were STILL problematic. I also received a copy on exchange from another library; it too was missing text. Most recently, when I tried to ask for a different issue from yet another library, that person discovered that her copy also lacked the page I needed. If people have complete versions of the issues in question, do you receive them directly from the federal government? Ours come via the Massachusetts Medical Society. I'm trying to find out where the problem originated and if it can be corrected. For a while I thought that I might be able to fill in my gaps from the MMWR website, but the missing pages are the beginnings of the articles & I don't know their titles. The website does not seem to allow for searching simply by volume, issue, & page number - unless I am missing something. A different question : does anyone know if for v. 47, 1998 there are SS issues beyond SS-5, or RR issues beyond RR-20? We keep our regular MMWR issues in large looseleaf binders but last year began sending the supplemental issues to be professionally bound, in order to reduce the clutter in our title workroom, where we keep all sorts of loose things. Is there a way to find out if I have a complete set of Recommendations and Reports and Surveillance Summaries for any given year? So - if any savvy SERIALSTer has further information or suggestions for me on either or both of the above matters, I'd be most appreciative. You've helped before with tricky or unusual problems, so I am hopeful. Meanwhile, happy weekend, everyone. Thanks in advance. - Natalie NATALIE L GORVINE LIBRARY ASSISTANT THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA MEDICAL LIBRARY ROOM 9546 34TH STREET AND CIVIC CENTER BOULEVARD PHILADLEPHIA PA 19104-4399 Phone : (215) 590-2317 Fax : (215) 590-1470 E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org ----------(2) >From echristian@WEBTV.NET Mon Feb 22 07:14:43 1999 Date: Fri, 19 Feb 1999 20:11:56 -0500 From: Elizabeth Jackson <echristian@WEBTV.NET> Subject: Re: Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports questions (Natalie Gorvine) Did you call the CDC ?
