    The Internet provides a rapid facility for accessing a large amount of information which, once found, can be manipulated in a variety of ways. For example, with the authors' permission, Web pages can be retrieved, converted into text files and edited to produce patient leaflets of sexually-transmitted conditions, prescribing information leaflets, clinical guidelines and protocols, etc. Collections of relevant Web sites placed in bookmarks on a Web browser for students to refer to could also form the basis for self-directed learning, and tutorials and small group teaching on specific subjects.
