College of DuPage Program: Ounce of Prevention: Health Reference Basics

Funded by LSTA through the State Library and Archives of Florida, NEFLIN is pleased to bring you the next College of DuPage program. Click on the program title to register to receive access information.

Rising health care costs, economic instability, and the proactive nature of today’s society are contributing to more and more individuals seeking out health information online and in print. Are you and your library ready to meet the diverse needs of these health information seekers? Are you effectively marketing your health-related services and resources?

This program will emphasize quality print and electronic resources as well as the roles and responsibilities of patients, library information professionals and health care professionals in the information seeking process. Join us in exploring various aspects of the health reference experience including the need to respect patient privacy, how to accommodate the cultural diversity of our clientele, matching the right types of resources to specific clients, and ways to successfully navigate tricky health reference situations. We’ll also look at ways to promote the health resources and services that you have to offer.

Virtual Trainer: Debra Kakuk Smith
Date: Thursday, April 16
