Strong Points: Well-organized
Weak Points: None

I don’t believe that in the 12 years I’ve been doing Best of the Web I’ve ever covered or even seen a page from this university system with its unusual acronym. Standing as a shortened way of saying NorthEastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy, NEOUCOM (why not NEOUCOMP?) hosts a collection of impressively organized links spanning a wide range of medical topics—including anatomy/ embryology/development, brain, cloning/genetic engineering, diabetes, geronotology medical education, physiology, nephrology, and much more. Under each subheading, visitors will find links to books, journals, databases, audio/visuals, and other websites relevant to the topic. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to pull all of this together and, best of all, to organize it in a fashion that makes access to the information trivial. Bravo! I wish more sites were as superbly organized as this one. Definitely worth a look-see.
