Osteopathic Medicine Digital Repository
 (OSTMED.DR) : When funding for OSTMED® ended in 2003 those interested in osteopathic research and scholarship were concerned about the future of collecting, disseminating and having Internet access to the osteopathic literature. VCOM and its partner, VTLS, Inc., conceived the idea of a digital library and submitted a proposal to the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and he American Academy of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) which was approved by March 2006. OSTMED.DR® was created using VTLS. solution, VITAL, a digital repository and management system that is designed to simplify the development of digital collections and provide seamless online search and retrieval of information.
