The search engine is a state-of-the-art tool designed for sophisticated collections of medical information. It runs in conjunction with a layer of semantic metadata that has been applied to all of the information in the website so that the content, though written by multiple authors and derived from many resources, is completely integrated and connected by these topic-based medical language tags that are compliant with the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS), developed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Semantic and full text search function is available for each platform. Boolean search terms are supported and the advanced search allows users to select the precise resources and/or content types they wish to search.

The sites in general are designed to be accessible to users with screen readers in accordance with Section 508 guidelines published by the US government (alt text for images, no meaning conveyed in color, pages can be read with stylesheets, etc.) Our SCM6 platform also gives users a text-size control that allows chapter text size to be controlled by the user, which is helpful for low-vision users. Our sites do not currently support the z39.50 protocol.
