USARIEM Launches New Website
The U. S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Natick, Mass., unveiled its redesigned institute website on March 18 in an effort to combine multimedia information and products into one easily accessible location.
The home page not only welcomes visitors to the site, but it also allows quick linking to everything from official social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, to ways that one may work with the institute, to current and archived news stories. It also allows users the ability to search for all USARIEM publications dating back to 1993, and links to websites of its sister organizations at Natick and its higher headquarters at the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.
The various tabs within the site allow users ease of access when seeking information about USARIEM. The "About" tab not only explains USARIEM's history, location and research divisions, it also boasts a new "Facilities" tab that allows visitors to take a virtual tour of the institute. The new "Partnering" tab allows users quick access to resource material such as submitting a new product, idea or research proposal, while the "Research" tab provides insight into USARIEM's core capabilities.
The "Media" tab serves as a digital newsletter, hosting current and past stories about the institute, and it also places marketing brochures instantly at users' fingertips. Finally, the "Publications" tab links visitors to USARIEM researchers' peer reviewed journal articles, textbooks and technical bulletins.
Sharing information and getting the message out are priorities of USARIEM, and using these venues will allow us to let users know what's happening quickly and effectively.
With this website release, it is also very important to remain vigilant regarding operational security and internet scams, cyber security and identify theft. There are frequent reports citing instances in which criminals use technology to invade both our homes and local, state and federal agencies. Keep in mind OPSEC means protecting information that can be used to piece together a puzzle about anything, including your home and work environments. Protecting our information is critical to ensuring that we keep our nation and homes safe.
