Health On the Net Foundation - HONinfo 3/2000 


*************  HONmedia via MeSH* 

HONmedia is a powerful new service we hope all users will enjoy. We've anchored it in the 
MeSH classifications, giving you scientifically-structured guidance to the still or moving 
picture you're looking for. HON has built the HONmedia index manually and we're adding new 
links all the time. The database now contains over 1,600 medical images and videos on the 
WWW:

*MeSH: Medical Subject Headings, the U.S. National Library of Medicine's vocabulary look-up 
aid: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html 


*************  Sneezin' season 

HON's new World Pollen Calendar helps travellers avoid (or come prepared for) allergic 
reactions to grasses, weeds and trees. Whatever your destination, a good first stop is:

Click on the world map to see what's blowing in the wind. 


*************  HONcode stands guard 

Surfers clicking the HONcode seal on a medical and health site that claims to subscribe to 
our Code of Conduct can now see immediate confirmation of that site's good standing. An 
automatic "status box" displays the site's unique HONcode ID number and other important 
information. For example, here's what we show for onhealth.com, one of the U.S.A.'s most 
popular Web destinations:

*************  MedHunt highlights elite sites 

We're committed to continuous improvement of all our online tools and services. MedHunt is 
our longest-serving search engine and has become one of the Web's best-known guides to 
health sites. We've just made it even better. MedHunt still offers users a unique range of 
world-wide search results. But there's even greater emphasis on quality and reliability. 
For example, from today on, MedHunt will first offer you all relevant HONcode member sites 
-- the quality elite:
