The National Library of Medicine will no longer support it’s Go Local projects. Without the support of NLM, the Dana Library has decided to discontinue Vermont Go Local by April 30. The goal of Vermont Go Local was to link health topics from the MedlinePlus consumer health database to Vermont health care providers and facilities. Vermont Go Local began in 2007 as a joint project of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), University of Vermont Dana Medical Library, the FAHC Frymoyer Community Health Resource Center, and the United Ways of Vermont, Vermont 2-1-1.
Since the project’s inception in 2001, NLM monitored and reviewed consumer usage and noticed a gradual decline over the years, probably due to the availability of similar information on the Internet.
We plan to add other resources to our library website that will provide important consumer health information.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause to users of the VT Go Local website.
