|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.|
