Taber’s Online Relaunched on the Unbound™ Platform
Charlottesville, VA, February 5, 2008—Today, Unbound Medicine, a leader in knowledge management solutions and mobile information resources for healthcare, and F.A. Davis Company, a leading publisher of texts and references for nurses and other healthcare professions, announced the expansion of their partnership with the relaunch of Taber’s Online. Now the website for Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary is powered by the award-winning Unbound™ Platform.
The new site, www.tabers.com, gives users a clean, modern, dynamic, and powerful interface for searching or browsing the extensive content that has made Taber’s one of the most popular healthcare dictionaries for more than 65 years. The utility and educational value of its 56,000 terms, 700 illustrations, 60 appendices, and 2,500 audio pronunciations are enhanced by “sounds-like” searching, cross-linking, and customizable bookmarks. Access to Taber’s Online is included with purchase of the print dictionary and is available separately.
“We have worked with Unbound Medicine on a broad range of products since 2003. When our customers responded enthusiastically to products such as Taber’s and Davis’s Drug Guide on Unbound’s PDA/Web/Wireless platform, we realized the value of using the same platform to power our most important website,” said Robert H. Craven Jr., President of F.A. Davis. “In our collaborative ventures, Unbound brings expertise in medical software, information architecture, and e-marketing to our own team’s deep experience in publishing for nursing and other healthcare disciplines.”
Additional features of the new Taber’s Online include a “Word of the Day” RSS feed, a site preview capability that allows visitors to experience the full functionality of Taber’s Online prior to subscribing, and one-click searching of dictionary terms in Unbound MEDLINE, the powerful yet intuitive gateway to 17 million medical journal articles.
“Students, educators, and practitioners have relied for years on publications bearing the F.A. Davis brand,” commented Bill Detmer, MD, President and CEO of Unbound Medicine. “It is our pleasure to team with Davis in the delivery of Taber’s and other time-honored references at the point of need, and to help build the base of individuals and institutions accessing healthcare content digitally.”
