You won't have to wait for hours or fill out any pesky forms to see MedHist, an annotated guide to more than 700 sites on medical history. Sponsored by Britain's Wellcome Library for the History and Understanding of Medicine, the catalog describes biographical sites on everyone from the 16th century anatomist Andreas Vesalius to polio vaccine pioneer Albert Sabin. You can peruse classic texts or read modern records, such as a collection of interviews with researchers at the National Institutes of Health who witnessed the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the United States.
