NLM Website Now Features MedlinePlus and PubMed Spotlights!
The National Library of Medicine website has updated their search result pages to spotlight selected NLM resources, including MedlinePlus and PubMed! Appearing as tabs at the top of the search results page, the spotlights include:
- “NLM Selected Resources” that highlights NLM products and services;
- “MedlinePlus Health Information” that highlights the most relevant MedlinePlus health topic; and
- “PubMed Citations” that highlights the first five article citations as returned by PubMed.
For example, searching for “asthma” in the NLM main website will retrieve the “Breath of Life” site in “NLM Selected Resources,” the “Asthma” health topic in “MedlinePlus Health Information,” and five article titles about asthma in “PubMed Citations,” in addition to the standard search results. The user may select one of the other tabs to display its contents in the spotlight.
