Facts on File launched a database redesign project with the expansion and enhancement of the company's six history databases: American History Online, American Women's History Online, African-American History Online, American Indian History Online, Ancient History Online, and World History Online.

Among the improvements are more user-friendly features, including tabbed search results, sharper and more colorful images, different points of access to information, personal folders for saving searched pages, and search tips located within the Help link.

Updated content access features include Learning Centers with new Browse features; newly enhanced image, map, and chart galleries; special features related to selected subjects; and faster, more direct access to content.

The Facts on File databases will be redesigned and launched in cycles, beginning with the history databases update in May.
