* What's New on PharmWeb? *


This page is slightly different to most "What's New" pages that you will find on the World Wide Web. We will not be listing every single new link that is added to PharmWeb since all pages (e.g. PharmWeb Yellow Web Pages, Societies and Groups page, etc.) are regularly updated. This page was created in response to feedback from PharmWeb users and the aim is to provide information on new developments such as new sections, new services, new mirror sites etc. This page was started in August 1995

If you are a regular user of PharmWeb and would like to receive the latest information on PharmWeb via e-mail, why not join the PharmWeb News mailing list.
