My Health Minnesota -- Go Local Ending on 7/1/10

Early this spring, the National Library of Medicine announced that it will discontinue the MedlinePlus Go Local initiative beginning in spring and continuing throughout 2010. More details about this decision are available in an NLM Technical Bulletin article from April 2010.

My Health Minnesota → Go Local will come to an end on July 1, 2010 when the site is decommissioned. The University of Minnesota Health Sciences Libraries and other Go Local partners will continue to provide quality consumer health resources and outreach even after Go Local ends. Minnesota's Go Local page will be redirected to the Health Sciences Libraries' Resources for Personal Health" (http://www.biomed.lib.umn.edu/guides/personal-health) page for reliable health resources and tools to locate health services in Minnesota. Users may also find MedlinePlus and its directories page useful alternatives to Go Local.

For more information or assistance with health information needs, please contact the Health Sciences Libraries at medref@umn.edu or 612-626-3260 or use the instant messaging reference service.
