mĕdĭcor (Latin, verb., dep. a. [id.], to heal, cure)
Developed by the Spokane County Medical Society, and a collaborative effort of physicians, educators and area medical librarians, the MEDICOR gateway gives you a powerful way at the point of care to search and retrieve authoritative clinical information from electronic databases, books and journals. Using MEDICOR’s simple Google®-type search system, you can simultaneously search up to ten databases (federated searching), or you can easily query each resource individually using its own native search engine. And MEDICOR’s SFX® linking technology helps you to quickly find those full-text articles. With MEDICOR’s robust personalization features you can create and search your own lists of databases or journals, save and re-run searches, or create custom folders to store your search results. And where full-text information is unavailable, you can seamlessly forward your request through MEDICOR to your hospital library’s document delivery service (where available).
MEDICOR works with most Web browsers and is available wherever you have Internet access. To use MEDICOR you must have medical staff privileges at, or be an employee of, Deaconess Medical Center, Valley Hospital & Medical Center, Holy Family Hospital or Sacred Heart Medical Center. You can easily apply for a username and password at the MEDICOR website, or call or email George McAlister, Systems Librarian, at (509) 325-5010. We would encourage you to arrange with George for a personal or group demonstration (at your location) of MEDICOR’s features and functionality. Medicor Project Goals
