Health/Medical Info: Responsive Design Comes to New Version of MedlinePlus Mobile

From MedlinePlus (Provided by the National Library of Medicine):

The National Library of Medicine’s new version of the MedlinePlus mobile site has all of the resources you can currently access on, including over 950 health topic pages, drug and supplement information, videos, news, a medical encyclopedia, and more. We’ve expanded upon the previous version of the mobile site, which contained only a subset of content from MedlinePlus.


Access the mobile version of any page on MedlinePlus by clicking the “Mobile version” link in the page footer. The “Desktop version” link in the mobile page footer takes you to the matching page on the current “desktop” site.


In 2015, the MedlinePlus team will release a fully responsive version of MedlinePlus to provide a consistent user experience from the desktop, tablet, or phone. This will remove the need for a separate mobile site. Users will then have one destination for MedlinePlus ( when using any device.
