Once again, librarians save the day! As reported last week, a reproductive health database run by John Hopkins University called POPLINE had removed the term "abortion" as a recognized search query in February. The change had gone unnoticed until a group of librarians at the Medical Center at UCSF had trouble gaining access to articles and brought it to the attention of the librarian community and then news outlets. The term has since been restored as a recognized search term within the database. As one librarian put it: it was silly to ignore searches using "a perfectly good noun such as 'abortion.'"
