Initial reaction to the redesign

Design Features Design Process Beta Disclaimer "Starting in 2010, the National Library of Medicine and its partners are phasing out the MedlinePlus Go Local project."
Crop, but explain Health Topic page as it appeared in the preview Health Topic page as it appears in MedlinePlus Incorporate beta language Reinforces that the user is seeing an unfinished preview version Inform users about discontinued features Continue using previews The idea of a preview was a great idea. It gives people time to adjust and also provide feedback. The redesigned M+ looks great! And I really appreciate this thoughtful way of introducing it. Showing me
where my favorite
sections of the page are moving to helps to better prepare for the change. Looking forward to using
the redesigned site. Teamsite MedlinePlus input system

Much better!
Much more appealing
to consumers &com-petitive with the look of other popular consumer
websites! Appears
easier to navigate.
User friendly... Clean,
crisp.... Excellent! Very intuitive & easy to use.
Thanks! consumer. "It is very important that you understand the preview site is not 100% accurate and should not be taken as final updated content." "In the interest of simplification, we've removed the 'Archive' tab from home which showed you your own updates. The reason is, it showed you the same stuff you see on your own profile page, it was oddly named, and people rarely used it."
