Presenter: Kelli Ham
To assist public library staff in building their capacity to provide reliable, quality health information, the California State Library, in partnership with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Southwest Region, has developed a new, online professional development toolkit - Finding Health and Wellness @ the Library: A Consumer Health Toolkit for Library Staff - with a primary focus on prevention and supporting healthy lifestyles.
This webinar will introduce users to the Toolkit and provide an orientation to the many multi-dimensional resources it contains, including core competencies, training resources, collection guidelines, programming ideas and promotional materials. The Toolkit is envisioned as a "living" resource that will evolve over time based on what we learn from its practical applications in the field.
Come learn about how this Toolkit can assist you in your own work and join us in helping to refine it. The webinar is free and will be useful for public and hospital librarians, library staff and anyone who provides health information to members of the public.
Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
