Health Sciences Library HealthLinks Webpage Development

HealthLinks is a collaborative project of Health Sciences Administration, the Health Sciences Libraries and the six Health Sciences schools. The goal of HealthLinks is to connect faculty, staff and students with quality information resources in the Health Sciences in support of lifelong learning, research and healthcare. It is structured for use at the point of need by clinicians, researchers, administrators, instructors and students within a distributed and multi-state educational environment. Students and faculty located both on campus and at training sites through the five-state WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) region access the website. The primary user population consists of more than 10,000 students, faculty and health professionals.

HealthLinks is the portal of choice for Health Sciences, receiving 4.5 million hits in the 1998/99 academic year. It is widely accessed from outside the University by corporate, education and consumer sites.
