HealthWeb: Inter-library Cooperation to Organize a Virtual Library of Health-related Internet Resources Public

In the face of budget cuts, rising publisher costs, and introduction of new technologies, librarians continue to provide quality services to their respective constituents through innovative alliances. This paper describes a unique cooperative venture among health sciences libraries of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), the academic equivalent to the Big Ten, to identify, organize, annotate, evaluate, and provide access to health-related resources on the Internet. The project, named HealthWeb, recognizes the value of information on the Internet and a need to offer a convenient interface to health-related information.
