Reliable Health Information @ your Library

Molly Youngkin from the Wegner Health Science Information Center (USD) will be presenting on finding current and reliable health information quickly and in a usable format. Searching can be a daunting task for patrons and the librarians trying to assist them. Please join Molly for a discussion on how to optimize the health reference interview, who to contact for public library support, how to find quality health Web sites with the most useful information, and how to counter questionable health reporting in the news and in social media.

  • From 9AM to 1PM with breaks
  • Bring your own laptop
  • You and your trustee can earn 4 contact hours for Voluntary Certification and or Accreditation
