PubMed Central’s New Look

PubMed Central (PMC), a free archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM) now has a new look.  According to the July 15th issue of the NIH/NLM’s Technical Bulletin,  the new “interface-lift” will “not only enhance its overall look and feel but also provide users with easier access to PMC resources and information.”

The new interface offers:

  • A revamped homepage, which offers better navigation through the site as well as direct access to resources such as the Users’ Guide and NIH Public Access information
  • Redesigned Advanced Search and Limits pages
  • An updated search results format
  • Direct access to images in PMC articles
  • A new organization and updated appearance for PMC’s  informational pages, including drop-down menus for navigation links
