Release Schedule Change
The UMLS changed to a semi-annual release schedule. Future releases are tentatively scheduled for the Spring and the Fall of each year. For 2008, the 2008AA UMLS Knowledge Sources were released in April and the 2008AB release is scheduled for early November. Information about UMLS releases is available from the Forthcoming UMLS Releases Web page.
DVD Packaging Change
UMLS DVDs are now mailed in self-mailers made from recycled paper. This change decreases mailing costs. UMLS release files are also available for download from the UMLS Knowledge Source Server V.6.0.
