Resource Updates August 2012
NLM recently released a new mobile app that is intended to serve as the authoritative guide to NLM mobile resources. The app was created as an HTML 5 mobile Web site in support of the Library’s ongoing efforts to make our information broadly available. Learn more about this new resource via the NLM Technical Bulletin article at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/ja12/ja12_nlm_mobile_app.html.
To explore the app, visit http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mobile-app/ on your mobile device.
The Library welcomes your feedback about this new app at http://apps2.nlm.nih.gov/mainweb/siebel/nlm/index.cfm or via the Contact Us link in the footer of the app.
PMC (formerly known as PubMed Central) has shortened its name in order to avoid confusion with PubMed. What’s also new is PMC’s look and feel, which has been updated to conform to NCBI’s new standards for page design. This redesign allows for a cleaner and more uniform presentation across PMC’s site as well as its article, issue and journal archive pages.
You can find LactMed information here http://www.nlm.nih.gov/learn-about-drugs.html.
That’s right, this page is a gateway to a comprehensive list of databases and web sites to help you become and stay informed about prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, supplements and other medications or remedies you want or need to know about.
It’s like shelf reading except you don’t have to tilt your head.
