Finding quality health information on the Internet

There's a free tutorial posted on MLANET, "Medical Information on the Internet: Guide for Health Reporters and Consumers," developed by two MLA members (Patricia Gallagher and Kathel Dunn) and geared toward aiding consumers with identifying and appraising health-related information on the Internet.

It includes discussion of general web searching, using PubMed and other databases, finding drug or genetic information, and finding information about doctors and hospitals, among many other topics. It also includes an introduction to the basic roles of the medical librarian.

(Update: link to tutorial fixed; thanks, Cynthia!)
