Changes to NLM TOXNET Resources

NLM created the Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET) in 1985 to improve access to NLM’s online chemical and toxicity databases. As part of the reorganization associated with its current strategic plan, NLM retired TOXNET in December 2019. Most of TOXNET’s databases have been incorporated into other existing NLM resources. Information about how to access these databases is available on the NLM website, and more detailed information is available in an NLM Technical Bulletin issued in November 2019. New locations for other NLM resources such as ToxTutor and ALTBIB are under discussion. NLM will conduct webinars and other presentations in 2020 to inform former TOXNET users how they can continue to access these resources.
