NC Health Info is an online guide to Web sites of quality health and medical information and local health services throughout North Carolina. Designed to meet the needs and interests of North Carolinians, NC Health Info leads users to resources that are reliable and easy to understand. Links on NC Health Info are selected and maintained by North Carolina librarians.
A key component of NC Health Info is the NC Go Local database, a collection of Web links to more than 5,000 Web sites of local health facilities in all 100 of North Carolina’s counties. This database of local links was the first resource of its kind to link local health services with corresponding information from MedlinePlus4, the consumer health site maintained by the National Library of Medicine5 and the National Institutes of Health6.
