> Dear E-Utility Users,
> Recently the name of the GEO Profiles database used within the E-utilities changed from 'geo' to 'geoprofiles'. While the old name (&db=geo) will still function, users are encouraged to change their requests to use the new name (db=geoprofiles). ELink users should be aware that all linknames including 'geo' will no longer function. Instead, these names should include 'geoprofiles' rather than 'geo'. For example, the linkname of links from Gene to GEO Profiles is now &linkname=gene_geoprofiles.
