There is an extensive list of topics covered, divided according to organisms, diseases and systems affected. Unlike other websites, they classify resources according to level of evidence and provide reviews by professional in the field.
Part of the NeLI family, Training In Infection (TII) – still available though no longer funded - accessible via NeLI, provides useful links for trainees on specialist journals, conferences, courses and textbooks.
