Dear Dr. Petri,

Wanted you to know that we have checked with the US Library of Congress to see if they have updated their language designations...and they have. Croatian and Serbian are now considered to be separate languages.

We will be working to correspondingly update the language designations in MEDLINE/PubMed, but it is likely to take some weeks to accomplish. The work will be done as soon as practically possible.

Thank you again for your correspondence.

Sincerely yours,

James Marcetich

Dear Nadan,

Thanks to your persistence and a lead, battles like this, we win. Leverage that CROWN produces is something that we should've had long time ago, but better ever then never. The job is not done yet, but as I mentioned in my letter to the US Library of Congress: If they want to be backwards, that is their choice. What we are doing is inevitable and will be changed, regardless of what they say or think today or tomorrow. In a month, two, three, six or even 12, the world will recognize what we are fighting for. Name of the language is our right, not privilege. Longer they resist, longer they are part of the past and not the future that is more just and fair.

Thank you again,

Nenad
