New Web pages highlighting the characteristics and resources of the
Pacific Northwest and the states of the region are now available at the
NN/LM Pacific Northwest Region Web site.
Staff of the NN/LM PNR often have questions about the region and states
that these pages are designed to answer. For example: How is the
minority population of the region different from the U.S. as a whole?
What parts of the region are designated frontier areas? Where are the
Health Personnel Shortage Areas?
Since we occasionally have to look for answers to these and other
questions about our region, we thought that others might find these
pages useful as well.
The series begins with "Regional Characteristics", which includes a
demographic table for quick reference. Separate pages about Alaska, Idaho,
Montana, Oregon, and Washington are linked from here. Each state page
provides a description and map, along with selected links that describe
the organization, populations and health status of the state.
The pages were researched and developed by Liisa Rogers, University of
Washington Information School MLIS student, and graduate assistant for
the NN/LM PNR, in consultation with PNR staff.
The new "Regional Characteristics" address is:
We hope you will find these resources both interesting and useful.
