MedlinePlus is Mobile!

Have an iPhone or other mobile device? Is MedlinePlus one of your favorite resources? Now you can access MedlinePlus from your mobile device!

From our National Network of Libraries of Medicine contact Terri Ottosen:

"Mobile MedlinePlus includes many of your favorite MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en espaƱol pages in a display that is optimized for mobile devices.

Mobile MedlinePlus includes

~ Topic summaries – “snackable” pieces of information, you can access and digest quickly
~ News – the latest in treatment, medical research and healthy living tips
~ Images – visual appeal is important
~ Encyclopedia articles & drug information – heavily-used content

Mobile MedlinePlus does not include

~ External links – these pages are not optimized for mobile; they are “regular” Web pages
~ Interactive tutorials – Flash doesn’t work on many mobile devices
~ Some licensed content – we’ll work on adding in the future"

You can learn more at the MedlinePlus Mobile FAQ Page.
