As part of a digital health sciences library's continuous quality improvement process, a digital textbook of common medical problems was created which contained links to authoritative medical information on the Internet for patients and health care providers. The accomplishments of this project were the: 1) Identification of 50 common medical problems, 2) Development of a methodology for identifying authoritative medical information related to these problems, 3) Creation of a digital textbook containing links to this information with a problem-based interface, 4) Development of a methodology to allow local peer review of this information, and 5) Evaluation of the use of the information and the local peer review methodology.
