Abstract As the World Wide Web expands, it is beginning to take on a new role as a publishing medium for authoritative encyclopaedic information. This development is likely to impact the way in which many professionals work--improving their access to up-to-date information on the one hand, while enabling their clients to be much better informed on the other. This article draws on the experience gained from publishing a small, specialised Web site providing information on the anti-infective properties of human breast milk. It describes the way in which the Web site came into being, the nature and structure of the information that is provided, and the types of responses the site has received. The article concludes with a discussion of the ways in which the availability of authoritative information on the Web is likely to impact the future roles of health professionals.
