Want to improve your consumer health collection and services? Interested in improving your reference skills for providing health information for the public? Then, this class is for you. We will start with a discussion about the information seeking behaviors of consumers. This class will focus on the provision of consumer health information services for the public. We will cover health literacy, planning the service, the reference interview, consumer health online, collection development, collaboration, community partnerships, outreach and marketing. Participants will also learn about how to stay up to date on consumer health librarianship.
