DigitalLearn.org, the Public Library Association’s collection of short self-directed tutorials for the public to increase their digital literacy, now features a course all about researching health topics on the Internet. Developed in partnership with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), the new course was designed to help learners understand and evaluate health information while avoiding potentially harmful or misleading sources. Consider linking this course on your library or organization’s website and social media.
