Save the date for the celebration of the BICC 25th Anniversary in Portland, Oregon, Friday, October 28, 2016.

“The Biomedical Information Communication Center is the resource for health information at Oregon Health Sciences University. The BICC building, which opened in September, 1991, houses library services; microcomputer facilities, training and support; audiovisual and video conferencing services; the Health Informatics Program; and BICC administrative offices.
