MAR has Reorganized Our Website

Friday, March 15th, 2013

As a result of focus groups and usability testing, MAR has restructured our website (http://nnlm.gov/mar/) to provide entry points for the populations we serve:  libraries, unaffiliated health professionals, K-12 professionals, and organizations providing consumer health information.  We’ve heard your voices and have redesigned our site to focus on you!

New Subject Categories

We added 4 new tabs/categories directing you to content designed specifically to meet your needs:

  • Libraries arranged by type of library:
  • Health Professionals

For health professionals unaffiliated with a medical library, public health professionals, mental health professionals, minority health professionals, and those working at Critical Access Hospitals:  http://nnlm.gov/mar/hp/

  • K-12 Professionals

For K-12 health and science educators, as well as those providing after-school programming in a K-12 school, community-based or faith-Based Organization:  http://nnlm.gov/mar/educators/

  • Consumer Health

For libraries, community-based and faith-based organizations providing consumer health information:  http://nnlm.gov/mar/consumer/

More Highlights

  • We added selected NLM resources to each page to get you started with resources to meet your needs
  • We added your primary MAR contact person on each page—so you’ll know who can answer your questions or concerns

So visit our redesigned website and let us know what you think!
