Article

Abstract

Comprehensive information about local health services can be difficult for patients and consumers to locate. Michigan Go Local is an online directory of health services developed in partnership with the National Library of Medicine that enables state residents to locate health services in their community. Each health service in the directory meets specific selection guidelines and is indexed by geographic service area, types of health services provided, and health issues addressed. This article describes the development of Michigan Go Local and how it can be used by librarians and consumers to locate health services in communities throughout Michigan.
