This new page has organized the NCBI resources into categories. The new homepage also contains a How To section in the center of the page, similar to a FAQ, linking to detailed steps that answer the question.

All NCBI pages, including PubMed, will have a new footer that will provide several links in categories such as Getting Started, Resources, Popular and Featured.
