Arizona Go Local

AHSL proposes to implement an Arizona Go Local project using the NLM centrally supported Go Local system and its partners and web site (http://azhealthinfo.org/) developed during the Arizona Turning Point project. In addition, it is our expectation that members of the Arizona Health Information Network (AZHIN), the Central Arizona Biomedical Libraries (CABL), and the Southern Arizona Biomedical Librarians (SABL) will participate as well. The Tribal Connections Four Corners Go Local project (a separate proposal submitted to the NN/LM MCR region) will cover the 4 Corners region of Arizona. AHSL and its partners will collect information on services in Arizona - including health departments, hospitals, medical centers, clinics, practitioners, libraries, local chapters of health organizations, etc. Our Turning Point partners (local public libraries and county health departments) and rural AZHIN members will be trained to collect and input data for their counties; CABL, SABL and urban AZHIN members will focus on metropolitan areas in the state. It is our intent to index the services by subject and geographically, using NLM?s controlled vocabulary, and to explore ways to map those headings to the controlled vocabulary we use on AZHealthInfo.org. The entries will be dated and local attribution will occur if appropriate.
