NLM retiring Women’s Health Resources information portal

Monday, October 5th, 2015

On October 5, 2015 NLM retired the Women’s Health Resources (WHR,) / information portal that was started in partnership with the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) in 2008. All those accessing the site will be redirected from the WHR portal to the Office of Research on Women’s Health homepage (


NLM appreciates the assistance of ORWH in the development of the portal and for providing outreach project funding to libraries to promote the portal and sex and gender differences in research among university faculty and students. We will continue our partnership by helping ORWH develop avenues for those seeking to search NLM databases such as PubMed and Clinical Trials for research on women’s health.

Redesigned NLM HIV/AIDS Site Launched

Monday, September 28th, 2015



The National Library of Medicine’s Web portal for HIV/AIDS information has been redesigned and given a new name. The new Web site, AIDSource, offers access to a comprehensive collection of HIV/AIDS-related information resources that are reviewed and selected by expert information specialists and librarians.

Visitors to AIDSource will now be able to view the Web site content on their mobile device. The Web site is now automatically optimized for display across all device types, including desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones. The new design of the Web site was constructed by user feedback received through a Web site survey in 2014. In addition to responsive design, the new AIDSource design also includes the following new features:

  • Addition of a slider feature that highlights resources of interest
  • Addition of images for topics
  • Improvements in Web site navigation, including a menu on all pages of the Web site that provides access to all topic areas

The mission of AIDSource is to serve as a reliable source for access to HIV/AIDS-related information from federal and non-federal sources. Resources included on the AIDSource Web site are organized by both topic of interest and audience, and information is available in English and Spanish.

NLM welcomes your feedback on the AIDSource Web site. Please send your comments to:
