New Website Feature


The Manuals are always looking for ways to enhance the quality of our service to users. If you haven’t visited our website recently, we invite you to check out our latest feature, auto-scroll. Auto-scroll is a tool that allows the next topic in the Manual to be automatically loaded so the user can continue to scroll without the need to think about the next topic or click to move to it.

The new auto-scroll feature will enhance our users’ experience, helping them to seamlessly locate additional topics related to their initial search.




Spotlight on Keryn


Our spotlight staff member this month is Keryn Lane, the Executive Editor of the Merck Manuals. Keryn has been with The Manuals for 32 years, 26 of them as the Executive Editor. Prior to her work at Merck Manuals, she was at WB Saunders editing Clinics. She’s a graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.


Keryn’s position as Executive Editor gives her the opportunity to see and edit every professional and consumer chapter, which gives her a unique perspective of knowing The Manuals’ content in and out. Although she enjoys hands-on editing, what she most enjoys is communicating with the authors and editorial board.


When she’s not at work, you can find Keryn walking or working out with kettlebells or TRX. She enjoys cooking, trips to NYC, and hanging out with her dog Cooper.
