  31. 31. I am thrilled with what I have been able to find re: archaic mammary embryology some of which I had been hoping to find at the National Library of Medicine, and to get it through your program was a huge advantage. Last night I believe I requested and received 11 PDFs, all of which are essential to a review paper* I am completing. Olav T. Oftedal PhD Smithsonian Environmental Research Center * “Evo-Devo of the Mammary Gland” by Oftedal, et al. Journal of Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia (May 2013)
