New look for National Library of Medicine website

The National Library of Medicine will be releasing an entirely new design and modified organizational structure for its main Web site, http://www.nlm.nih.gov , 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, amongst other things it now features:

-"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;
-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 http://www.nlm.nih.gov/about/nlmredesign.html
