The coronavirus pandemic has underscored the importance of knowing which health information resources to trust. This is true not only during a world health crisis but also in the day-to-day need many people have for evidence-based health information in order to make important personal or family healthcare decisions. When it comes to health information, there is a lot of noise out there but there is also help. Join Michele Spatz, National Network of Libraries of Medicine Community Engagement Coordinator, as she talks about evidence-based health resources (and how to tell); shares a few key evidence-based health websites/resources (including evidenced-based coronavirus information) and touches on disaster planning information for libraries.
First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
