The Community Health Online Digital Archive Research Resource

The Community Health Online Digital Archive Research Resource (CHODARR) project will establish a permanent, publicly accessible, no-fee digital archive of research materials related to health and social welfare, with special interest in HIV, women’s health, aboriginal health, and community mental health. The unique features of CHODARR will be its genuine accessibility (via the internet), its content (focused on “grey literature”), and its diversity of stakeholders.

If you're in Vancouver October 18th, please join the BCLA Information Policy Committee for a Salon by Dr. Cindy Patton on CHODARR, featuring the project and related policy issues. If you cannot attend, but have questions for Dr. Patton, please let us know.

For details and to register for the Salon, please contact IPC Co-Chair Carla Graebner. Contact information is available on the BCLA web site - look up Committees, then IPC.
