Drug Information Portal from NLM

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) released the new Drug Information Portal, which was designed to give health care professionals, researchers, and the general public a one-stop resource for current, accurate, and understandable drug information.

The Drug Information Portal provides access to information about more than 12,000 drugs, pulled from numerous drug information databases, including MedlinePlus.

NIH Public Access Information Page

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy requires that researchers funded by NIH grants submit their final, peer-reviewed manuscripts, which have been accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008, to PubMed Central. The Health Sciences Library and the Office of Research have constructed an NIH Public Access Policy Information page containing links to helpful resources. Click on the link to go to the page.
