I enjoyed this article very much as it surfaces major issues affecting public health practice. Health agencies at all levels will need health informatics skills and the ability to use those skills. Graduate education needs to prepare students for this obvious skill set. Your article should help prepare the way for many more.
Ann Bolek did a thorough job in describing Scifinder Scholar. I was especially impressed by the way she described how the different versions evolved. I would add that the non-academic Scifinder has a feature called "Keep me posted" which allows users to easily update searches. I hope that Chemical Abstracts Service adds this feature to Scifinder Scholar.
