Oregon Go Local Project

Posted by on December 17th, 2007 Posted in: Funding, News From NNLM PNR

By Dolores Judkins, Oregon Health & Science University

The OHSU Library has received the official announcement from the National Library of Medicine that Oregon has been accepted by to become a MedlinePlus GoLocal site. Todd Hannon, OHSU Reference Librarian, wrote the proposal for an LSTA grant through the Oregon State Library, and we were notified in October that the proposal was funded. We also received additional funding through the National Library of Medicine. We are very excited that Oregon will be one of the GoLocal states.

GoLocal is a feature of MedlinePlus that enables people to find local resources for health care, beyond the general health information that is available in MedlinePlus. To see what this will mean for Oregon, go to MedlinePlus, look up a condition or disease, and then select a state from the GoLocal link on the right side of the page. If you click on the map at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/golocal/topicmap_32.html you will see that the northwest does not have other GoLocal state projects, although Montana will be going live soon.

We have had wonderful support from the libraries and groups we worked with in writing the grant, and look forward to working with many of you as the project gets underway. We will be hiring a project director, and the position will be posted soon. If you have questions about this project or would like more information about it, please contact Todd Hannon at 503-494-3474 or hannont@ohsu.edu.
