Description: Summary Points: Ptolemy is a new model for electronic access to medical literature for doctors in developing countries. Surgeons in East Africa become research affiliates of the University of Toronto adn have access to full-text resources of the university library via a secure internet system that monitors and verifies use. By engaging a well defined group of end users in an electronic research community, Ptolemy contributes directly to building research capacity in Africa. Ptolemy is a small project but it has the potential for being widely and economically reproduced.
