Friday, April 4th, 2014

TOXNET, the National Library of Medicine database on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health, and toxic releases, is releasing a new interface later this spring. It will provide an improved appearance and interactive capabilities as well as a more current look and feel. See the latest NLM Technical Bulletin for a screenshot of what the new database home page will look like.
