New History of Medicine web sites
Contagion is part of Harvard University Library's Open Collections Program. Organized by significant episodes of contagious disease (such as cholera and influenza), it's a rich digital collection that combines books, serials, pamphlets, incunabula, & manuscripts, including materials from the Center for the History of Medicine.

From Steven Palmer at the University of Windsor comes Cultures of Health http://hih.uwindsor.ca/wordpress/, an on-line forum that will publish research, including fragments and works-in-progress, from researchers at all levels. the intent is to have information appear quickly to generate conversations about research and ideas in the cultural and social history of medicine and health.
