Re: PubMed Central

I recognise the attraction of linking to PubMed Central and other
pre-print/e-print servers.  I have two questions for the library

1.  How does the library guide patrons on what is quality controlled and
peer-reviewed, and what is unreviewed?  This may prove to be very
important in bio-medicine, where unreviewed and unmoderated articles may
present dangers if applied in clinical practice.

2.  How will libraries catalogue the contents on such servers?
