.:Orthopaedic Web Links (O.W.L):.

Introduction to OWL

The Orthopaedic Internet continues to grow at staggering rates. Automated search engines are increasingly unable to turn up relevant results to specific orthopaedic related search queries. The small paid editorial staffs at commercial directory sites can't keep up with submissions, and the quality and comprehensiveness of their directories has suffered. Link rot is setting in and they can't keep pace with the growth of orthopaedic resources on the Internet.

OWL provides the means for the Internet to organize itself. OWL Editors can each organize a small portion of the Orthopaedic Internet and present it back to the rest of the population, culling out the bad and useless and keeping only the best content.

The Definitive Catalog of the Orthopaedic Internet

OWL follows in the footsteps of some of the most important editor/contributor projects of the 20th century such as the DMOZ/Open Directory Project and the Oxford English Dictionary. OWL strives to become the definitive catalog of the Orthopaedic Internet.

The OWL Directory is the only major directory that is 100% free. There is not, nor will there ever be, a cost to submit a site to the directory, and/or to use the directory's data. The OWL Directory data is made available for free to anyone who agrees to comply with our free use license.

Become an OWL Editor

Like any community, you get what you give. The OWL Directory provides the opportunity for orthopaedic surgeons, fellows, trainees and allied professionals to contribute.

Signing up is easy: choose a topic you know something about and join. Editing categories is a snap. We have a comprehensive set of tools for adding, deleting, and updating links in seconds. For just a few minutes of your time you can help make the Orthopaedic Internet a better place, and be recognized as an expert on your chosen topic.

The OWL Concept

Orthopaedic Web Links is founded on the concept that it is better to combine than compete! The initial Founders each had a strong record of activity in the Orthopaedic Internet and recognized that the task of finding and evaluating the information available to orthopaedic surgeons and patients is far greater that one individual or organization can undertake successfully. Also, until there is a source of information in orthopaedics which is comprehensive enough and prominent enough to be termed an authority, those seeking and those providing information will seldom make contact. We invite all those who also wish to provide a comprehensive and authoritative collection of orthopaedic links to contact us and join OWL.
