The intention of the new system is to reduce the human time and effort required to build and maintain a Go Local project. Setting/Participants: An academic health sciences library with a Go Local project formed a research partnership with the local library and information sciences school and a major collaborative multi-institutional computing center. Description: Established audit practice requires all health services websites be periodically examined to check for content changes including the addition or deletion of provided services, phone number, address, etc. However, not every site changes during every review period. Off-the-shelf and open source solutions designed to notify users when sites have changed were evaluated but did not work in our setting. A tool was created to track sites, identify changed ones, and feed only those into the review or audit process, reducing the number of records requiring human examination. Another tool highlights our vocabulary on sites enabling quicker cataloging of new records. Testing of the fully integrated tools is underway.
