NLM Specialized Information Services Web Pages Get Refreshed!
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Division of Specialized Information Services home page has been refreshed in an effort to streamline information and to make the resources easier to access. In addition to new banners for some secondary pages, the home page now includes the same “Search Our Web Site” feature included on the Toxicology and Environmental Health (TEHIP) page. Please note that TOXNET searches should be initiated on the TOXNET home page or via the “Search TOXNET” feature of the TEHIP page.
The NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) Web pages also have a new look. DIMRC is a part of the Specialized Information Services Division. The DIMRC pages have been redesigned to enhance access to the many and diverse NLM resources useful for disaster and emergency readiness, response, and recovery. Emergency responders will find links to the WISER resource for hazardous materials incidents and the Radiation Emergency Medical Management site.
A growing list of guides to online disaster information includes titles such as “Crude Oil Spills and Health,” “Special Populations: Emergency and Disaster Preparedness,” and “Floods.” New features include an A to Z Index, links to the latest articles and reports from PubMed and the Resource Guide for Public Health Preparedness, and news about disaster events, publications, and online resources from both US and international sources.
