Beyond an Apple a Day: Providing Consumer Health Information at Your Library

Tuesday, December 15, 2015
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
CDLC Offices, 28 Essex Street, Albany

This hands-on class will cover the health information seeking behavior of consumers and the role of the librarian in the provision of health information for the public.

Come learn about the evolution of consumer health, health literacy and the e-patient!

Participants will be equipped with knowledge of top consumer health sites, e-patient resources and collection development core lists. We will also discuss creative ideas for health information outreach.

This program is open and free to all CDLC member library staff. We hope to see you there!

Registration is required by Monday, December 14th.
