The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), recently launched a mobile version of its Drug Information Portal.

The Drug Information Portal is a free Web resource that provides an informative, user-friendly entryway to current drug information for over 32,000 drugs. Links to sources span the breadth of the NLM, NIH and other government agencies. Current information regarding consumer health, clinical trials, AIDS-related drug information, MeSH pharmacological actions, PubMed biomedical literature and physical properties and structure is easily retrieved by searching on a drug name. A varied selection of focused topics in medicine and drug-related information is also available from displayed subject headings.

Smart Phones accessing the main Drug Portal site will be taken the mobile site. Names, usage and structures are displayed, as well as search links to key NLM and government sites, using their mobile version when available. Spell checking and auto-suggest are also used during input.
