The Mobile Searcher and Medical Information

The combo of mobile and local search is all the rage these days but mobile access to health and medical info/research has been building momentum for several years. In fact, the National Library of Medicine released a mobile interface to PubMed back in 2003 and since then has released several other mobile tools. This new compilation has intro info and links to the growing list of resources that NLM offers mobile web searchers. Since the topic is mobile search and health info, I recently learned that a mobile versions of the Merck Manual and other reference tools are available (free).
