On-line resources for otolaryngologists

  • Ahmed A. Saada (a1)


Advances in telecommunications technology in the last decade have fostered the development of computer networks that allow access to vast amounts of information and services. The most prominent is the Internet (Glowniak, 1995). Medical information is increasingly available on such computer networks. The purpose of the present article is to provide an update to previously published otolaryngology sites (Johns, 1996; Burton and Johns, 1996) available on the World Wide Web, and to provide the otolaryngologist with details of resources that are accessible via the Internet. However, the reader should also be aware that the uniform resource locator (URL) addresses of Web sites can change without warning.
