07/14/10  Portland, Ore.

MedlinePlus, the National Library of Medicine's and National Institutes of Health's premier source for free online consumer health information, has been redesigned based on feedback from users. The updated site sports a new logo and new features:

  • Videos & Cool Tools that make multimedia content easier to find.
  • A Share button on all health topic pages and interactive tutorials that allows you to share links to MedlinePlus through your favorite social networks.
  • A medical dictionary search box on the English homepage.
  • A search cloud widget on the homepage, and a widgets page where you can find options for embedding MedlinePlus content in your own blogs, personalized homepages, and other sites.

If you have questions about MedlinePlus or any other free resources of the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, please contact an OHSU Librarian at refer@ohsu.edu .
