ResourceShelf beat me to it (good lord, they’re amazing), but it is worth repeating.

The whole press release is available here.

Vivísimo today announced its selection by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to enhance searching on www.nlm.nih.gov. The NLM, the world’s largest biomedical library, will leverage Vivísimo’s enhanced search functionality to provide quick and easy access to information on linked Web pages. Vivísimo will also enable search functionality for the NLM’s consumer health web sites, MedlinePlus (http://medlineplus.gov) and MedlinePlus en español (http://medlineplus.gov/spanish/), aggregators of medical and health information from government agencies and other authoritative organizations.

When I first saw Vivísimo’s ClusterMed and BioMetaCluster, I thought they demonstrated a lot of potential. I wonder if these were developed for the specific purpose of pitching the NLM…

I can’t wait to see what Vivísimo is going to do for MedlinePlus! I already find it powerful and easy to use, so enhancements are just icing. Sweet, delicious, gooey icing. 🙂
