  • A rotating feature at the top of the page that highlights current interest topics and new content on MedlinePlus
  • "About Your Health" boxes, which link to popular MedlinePlus health topic pages
  • A Medical Dictionary search box
  • The MedlinePlus search cloud widget
  • An e-mail updates sign up box so users can receive customized MedlinePlus updates

The Videos & Cool Tools page is a new page that brings together:

  • anatomy, surgery and news videos
  • interactive tutorials
  • health calculators
  • quizzes and games

Contact your librarian if you have any questions about MedlinePlus or consumer health information.
