ABSTRACT

      A multi-institutional collaborative project is described. The aim of the project is to improve access to information on Latin American Social Medicine. The use of the Internet to improve access rather than continue to create barriers to access will be explored. The utility of a digital library of structured abstracts in such initiatives will be demonstrated.
