Medical Software on the UMich Archive

The pointers here are to files on the Michigan Archive [] and can be retrieved by ftp to login - anonymous and password - your e-mail address. This is a busy site. I am trying to map these files to an ftp server in Norman OK. The files that have been mapped will be highlighted by your WWW client software (especially Mosaic and MacWeb). Clicking on these links will start a ftp/download session with the server in Norman. Some of these links may change with time. Please let me know if you find any changes. David Bourne (

There is a mirror to the Michigan Archive at Washington University in St Louis. The Medical Directory can be reach here (Remember these sites are busy - please be patient). The latest index can be retrieved here.


This list is intended to include all and only the files within this directory. You may find that some of the paths listed here do not point to this directory. That is ok; the physical paths are given here but there may be a link in another location.

If you find any problems or you wish to add to or change the descriptions given here, please do not hesitate to write
