Many free Web sites provide drug information, but it can be difficult to determine if these sites are trustworthy and correct. PharmGuide (http://goo.gl/f14Me) is an online directory of Web sites providing accurate, authoritative, and free information about prescription and over-the-counter drugs. It was created and is maintained by the Pharmacy and Drug Information Section of the Medical Library Association. Nine criteria are used to assess Web sites, ensuring that selected sites are current, unbiased, and authoritative. Intended for use by librarians, health care professionals, and consumers, PharmGuide provides annotations describing the content and navigation of free drug information Web sites.
