National Library of Medicine Launches Redesigned Digital Collections Homepage
On November 5, 2018, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) released a new design for the Digital Collections homepage. The updated homepage conveys the broad scope of Digital Collections’ content and provides users an enhanced search experience. Usability testing, analytics, and user feedback influenced the new design.
Digital Collections is the NLM free, online repository of biomedical resources including books, still images, videos, and maps. All the content in Digital Collections is freely available worldwide and, unless otherwise indicated, in the public domain.
The new design includes simplified search and browse options, recently digitized items, a rotating banner of featured items from the Digital Collections, information about each collection in Digital Collections, and links to related projects.
