NLM VSAC Launches the VSAC Collaboration Tool

On December 16, 2015, The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Value Set Authority Center (VSAC) launched VSAC Collaboration – a tool to support communication, knowledge management and document management by value set authors and stewards.

VSAC Collaboration provides a central site where value set authors can post value sets for collaborative discussion. In that site, teams can share threaded discussions about the value sets, view recent value set expansions posted by site members, organize their value sets by usage and by team’s workflow needs, and receive activity and change notifications from VSAC.

You can access the VSAC Collaboration Tool through the VSAC Authoring Tool ( Authoring Tab), and you can access the VSAC Collaboration Tool directly at

You can view the VSAC Collaboration Tool training webinars and slides at

Access to the VSAC and to the VSAC Collaboration Tool requires a free Unified Medical Language System® Metathesaurus License.

Since its founding in 1836, the National Library of Medicine has played a pivotal role in translating biomedical research into practice and is a leader in information innovation. NLM is the world's largest medical library, and millions of scientists, health professionals and the public around the world use NLM services every day.
