Abstract

The study identifies, evaluates and compiles accessible and useful Web resources on Human Immune-deficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) for the benefit of librarians, researchers, health workers, community workers, who work with HIV/AIDS patients. It covers various aspects of the subject, namely treatment, clinical trials, newsletters, journals, nutrition, bibliography links and international organizations concerned with HIV/AIDS. Out of the numerous websites that were visited, only 50 were found to be accessible and authoritative. The study ends with recommendations on how library services can be enhanced in terms of provision of useful information on HIV/AIDS.
