Establishment of the TOXNET Web site offers an opportunity to raise awareness about the TOXNET databases. The committee hopes that NLM will take advantage of this opportunity to broaden its outreach and training efforts. At the same time, it is hoped that the search interface will continue to evolve and that NLM will continue to integrate the TOXNET information into its overall Web site and its plans for the future.
