Healthweb is an ongoing project of CIC (Committee for Institutional Cooperation) schools (Big 10 schools plus University of Chicago), to "develop an interface which will provide organized access to evaluated non-commercial, health related, Internet-accessible resources." The site includes an extensive list of subjects in the main directory as well as an impressive list of links to sites covering health issues ranging from AIDS to Medical Information to Women's Health. In this distributed collection, each subject is handled by a particular CIC university. This site is one of the better starting points for locating health-related information on the Internet.
