Image caption on page 120 of the book US National Library of Medicine: "Ceremony on Capitol Hill, June, 26, 1977. On this occasion, Vice President Albert Gore (sitting) introduced free MEDLINE searching via the Internet and demonstrated a new system developed by the library called PubMed, which simplified searching for online medical information by researchers and the public alike. Standing, from left: Suzanne McInerney, co-author (with Fred D. Baldwin) of Infomedicine (Little Brown, 1996); David J. Lipman, MD, Director, National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI); Harold Varmus, MD, 1989 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, and Director, National Institutes of Health, and Donald A.B. Lindberg, MD, Director of the library. The flexibility of PubMed and ease of use prompted Gore to say that free MEDLINE on the Web 'may do more to reform and improve the quality of health care in the United States than anything else we have done in a long time.' As of 2016, more than three million people use PubMed daily as their source of medical information."
