On the present exists in the Internet a large number of medical informations. These resources are unique and more actual than their printed version. In the Czech Republic there are medical resources collected through structural indexes (e.g. the portal Helpnet). The portal Citmed collects and evaluates foreign and czech resources. The professional portal BIOME exists abroad, that comprehends a medical database OMNI. Since 2003 the National Medical Library does bibliographic entry of the free available medical internet resources. It is collected fulltexts and internet textbooks. The acquisition of resources i done through excerption from professional articles, by the help of professionals. The resources are evaluated in the cooperation with the Charles University in Prague - 2nd Faculty of Medicine (the portal Citmed).
Medical resources are catalogued in agreement with enforceable world standards. In this time the databes included cca 850 records of electronic information resources.
In the year 2002 I graduated from FF UK Prague - section Information studies and librarienship (information scope). In 1996-2002 I worked in the National Library of the Czech Republic, where I participated in retrospective conversion catalogues GK NKF and GKII by means of the technology RETROKON and I was concerned in ex post catalogues maintenance and authority maintenance. Since 2002 I work in the NL as an external employee and I cooperate with the Department for Technical Support and Retrospective Conversion of Catalogues.
Since 2002 I am employed in the National Medical Library in the Department of Home Affairs. My workload is an archives administration of the project MEDVIK and the project MedGate. I acquire and I make bibliographic desrciptions of czech medical internet resources in the librarian system in the NML. I access them on the NML web pages and I check for the accuracy of the url addresses. I participate in maintenance of the NML web pages through the editorial system.
