 New Look for NLM Web Site Coming Soon

drop cap letter for t he National Library of Medicine will be releasing an entirely new design and modified organizational structure for its main Web site,, on May 10, 2004. These changes are a result of extensive usability testing and consumer feedback. The new design retains many elements of the current site, but now features:

  • a more attractive and compact home page;
  • a carefully tested organization of data designed to help users find information;
  • quick links to popular resources;
  • "portal" pages for the public, health care professionals, researchers, librarians, and publishers;
  • up-to-date news on the home page;
  • a top navigation bar including a search box on every page; and
  • a printer-friendly version option on many pages.

No URLs will change as a result of the redesign, and the site will download faster than before. For more information on features of the new design go to As always, NLM welcomes any comments and suggestions about its Web sites by email or phone at 888.346.3656 or 301.594.5983 (local and international calls).
