The U.S. Department of Labor has relaunched its website with a new name, Disability.gov. The new site provides information about programs and services for the more than 50 million Americans with disabilities and their family and friends.
Disability.gov now mashes-up content from 22 federal agencies and will be managed by the Labor Department’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). The site now has a more user-friendly navigation; for example, from the home page visitors can reach what they need, including: finding a job, applying for disability benefits; learning about disability laws; learning about assistive technology; finding health care and seeking federal government grants, among other needs.
Additionally, the former DisabilityInfo.gov site was also revamped with social media tools, including a Twitter feed, RSS, a blog, and social bookmarking. Visitors can sign up for personalized news and updates, participate in online discussions and suggest resources for the site.
