The James Lind Library http://www.jameslindlibrary.org follows the development of tests of medical efficacy. The James Lind Initiative, Oxford, UK, says that "The James Lind Library has been created to help people understand fair tests of treatments in healthcare by illustrating how fair tests have developed over the centuries." The first tab on the menu is "What is a fair test" and this is answered by a series of essays around the subject along with references. The "Contents" section covers the 18th Century to the 21st Century and illustrates the overarching perspective of this treatise, and this is a perspective that other, more hands-on, how-to approaches often fail to achieve. An overview of the library and its mission can be found in the section "Building the James Lind Library." Original papers and manuscripts are used throughout to illustrate the evolution of the concept of fair testing, and submenus on these pages offer key passages, commentary, portrait, and context for each manuscript. The whole website is extensively cross referenced. And just who was James Lind? You can find that out here: http://www.jameslindlibrary.org/trial_records/17th_18th_Century/lind/lind_biog.php.
