NLM® Division of Specialized Information Services Web Pages Refresh

[Editor's Note: This is a reprint of an announcement published on NLM-Tox-Enviro-Health-L, an e-mail announcement list available from the NLM Division of Specialized Information Services. To subscribe to this list, please see the NLM-TOX-ENVIRO-HEALTH-L Join, Leave, or Change Options page.]

The National Library of Medicine® (NLM) Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) homepage has been refreshed in an effort to streamline information and to make the Division resources easier to access.

In addition to some new banners for some secondary pages, the homepage now includes the same "Search Our Web Site" feature included on the Toxicology and Environmental Health (TEHIP) page. Please note that this entry point searches the SIS Web site. TOXNET® searches should be initiated on the TOXNET homepage or via the "Search TOXNET" feature of the TEHIP page.

The NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) Web pages also have a new look. DIMRC is a part of the Specialized Information Services Division.

The DIMRC pages have been redesigned to enhance access to the many and diverse NLM resources useful for disaster and emergency readiness, response, and recovery. Emergency responders will find links to the WISER® (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) resource for hazardous materials incidents and the Radiation Emergency Medical Management site.

A growing list of guides to online disaster information includes titles such as "Crude Oil Spills and Health," "Special Populations: Emergency and Disaster Preparedness," and "Floods." New features include an A to Z Index, links to the latest articles and reports from PubMed® and the Resource Guide for Public Health Preparedness, and news about disaster events, publications, and online resources from both US and international sources.
