This paper describes the development of NMAP, a UK academic gateway to high quality Internet resources for nurses, midwives and allied health professions - an important component of the development of flexible and multi-professional learning. The rationale underlying the development is described, along with some of the issues and processes involved. Initial usage data are included, which show that there was a need for the service and that it is well used. An initial user evaluation was undertaken during November-December 2001 with over 600 users completing an online questionnaire; some preliminary data and analysis are presented. The paper concludes by examining future plans and developments.
