Lessons Learned from Martindale\u27s WWW Reference Projects

By Jim Martindale


The Martindale Homepage Project was initiated two years ago to explore what curriculum aids and research were being mounted on the web. Soon, it became clear that there was sufficient information to establish a virtual library that could support a medicl school curriculum, and specialized medical, dental, veterinary, nursing, nutrition, public health, agriculture and medical law reference sources. Martindale\u27s Health Science Guide is a \u22multimedia specialized information resource\u22 currently containing over 19,600 teaching files over 29,300 Medical Cases, 342 courses/textbooks, 1000s of graphic displays and over 5,200 (MPEG\u27s) movies. The \u22Graduate \u26 Undergraduate Center\u22 for major science disciplines is another site as is \u22Martindale\u27s Reference Desk\u22 which is a self-contained virtual reference collection. With Frank Potter, Martindale has created \u22Potter\u27s Science Gems for K-12 Science Education.\u22 Comments will be shared about what this means for science \u26 medicine, what user feedback has been like, and what future developments are underway. It\u27s creator, known for \u22surfing the 3rd Wave at the Wedge \u26 on the Net\u22 is here to share impressions and observations about electronic web publishing and information dissemination in this medium
