MedlinePlus Encyclopedia – more links!

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Forwarded from Stephanie Narva Dennis, NLM

MedlinePlus users have more ways to discover rich content from the A.D.A.M. medical encyclopedia. Nearly 700 of the 800 English MedlinePlus topic pages now include links to related encyclopedia articles.

Look for the “Encyclopedia” box on the right-hand side of a topic page. If there are more than 10 related encyclopedia links, the box shows the first 10 by default and you can see the rest by clicking the plus (+) symbol to expand the box. Links to Spanish encyclopedia content will be increasing in the coming months on MedlinePlus en español. On the Spanish topic pages, the encyclopedia links will appear in the body of the page instead of in a separate encyclopedia box.

Additionally, users will now see links to related MedlinePlus topics in the side-bar of many English and Spanish encyclopedia articles.
