Access to Electronic Health Information: Central Valley Access Project Phase I
The project will create a set of web pages to serve as information resources for health information in the Central Valley. The site will include healthcare service groups, medical libraries, authoritative consumer healthcare links, and national databases including MEDLINEplus, PubMed, and ClinicalTrials.gov. Local health service providers will be encouraged to register with the site. In addition to providing important healthcare information the pages are intended to support interorganizational cooperation among healthcare information intermediaries and health science libraries in the Central Valley. The project will also develop, publicize and provide a single-session health information class (focusing on MEDLINE via PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, MEDLINEplus and Internet accessible consumer health sources) to be offered on ten different dates to members of community-based organizations (CBOs), school library educators, and librarians within the Heartland Region of the Library of California located in Fresno, Tulare, Madera, and Kings counties.
