info for travel and tourism and medical videos

Hi everyone,
I’ve come across a few sites that might be useful for travel and tourism, plus an interesting set of videos for patients (see last on list). I haven’t checked for copyright permissions etc, you will need to contact the various bodies involved if you wish to re-use any of them. I did find a couple of the medical videos on YouTube though.

Cheers

This site has links to TIES research publications, library resources. Can subscribe to site ($150 US, institution charge) which may give access to further publications etc. Worth a look I’d say.
