This pro and contra report assesses the current state of the WWW as a teaching aid for Medical Informatics, using the experience gained from the delivery of a module to a heterogeneous group of health workers enrolled in an MSc/PgDip in Primary Care. The students were expected to act as both information consumers in a directed bibliographic retrieval task and information providers for Primary Care. The students' perceptions as to the usefulness and local relevance of current resources on the world wide web (WWW) are discussed.
