More Information


The UMLS Tab and its source code (like Protege) are freely available under the open source Mozilla Public License.

Anyone who wishes to use this plug-in should be aware that the National Library of Medicine requires a signed license agreement in order to use or access UMLS content. The license is free of charge and you are responsible for abiding by the license terms, which protect the rights of the providers of some component vocabularies. You can obtain a copy of the license agreement from the UMLS Information Web site.

Level of Support

This plug-in is no longer under active development. Since the Protege community continues to express interest in the UMLS Tab, the Protege team will answer questions about the tab (as time permits) via the protege-discussion mailing list. We also recompile the UMLS Tab to make sure that it works with each new version of Protege.

The source code for the UMLS Tab is available in the Protege Subversion repository. The URL to browse the code via a Web interface is: The URL to download the source code with a Subversion client is:
