From the GMR: AHIP Points for Go Local Participation
MLA has recently announced that contributors to MedlinePlus Go Local will be eligible to earn AHIP points. If working on Go Local is part of your job, as it is for the Go Local coordinators and a few others, you are not eligible for these points. Others of you may be eligible, and volunteers definitely are.
According to Lori Klein, of the MedlinePlus Go Local team at NLM, contributors will be "eligible for five points per year under Section II Part 1 B (Editing: Web Sites, Mailing Lists, Listservs) of the Point Index. The online version of the Point Index will be updated to include this activity in the spring."
