Public Libraries and Healthy Communities

Public libraries, you know your community is looking to you for help answering their health questions. This session will provide an overview of freely available, trusted online resources for public libraries and their patrons. We will also cover resources available for continuing education to beef up your health reference skills, and funding sources for health-related programming for your communities.

Bobbi Newman is a Community Engagement and Outreach Specialist at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine where she helps public libraries meet the health information needs of their communities. She is the author of Protecting Patron Privacy: A LITA Guide.
