Searching Cyberspace for Health and Science Information
MedLine A powerful search engine for finding what you need in the scientific literature, available to all at no cost. But be prepared--the raw scientific literature is not so easy to understand.
Healthfinder A good index of health and disease information for the public, created by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Yahoo Science Directory An excellent place to begin a Web search for a science topic. You might want to limit the search to "just this category" to cut down on extra material you don't want.
