New Project Funded to Explore Public Health and Public Library Partnerships

Posted by on October 30th, 2019 Posted in: Funding, Public Health, Public Libraries


The GMR is excited to announce that the Institute for Public Health Practice at the University of Iowa College of Public Health has been awarded funding for its project: Information Collaboration: Bringing Public Health Organizations and Public Libraries Together.

This project will provide resources and educational opportunities that highlight the benefits of collaboration between public health organizations and public libraries. The project will begin with a thorough assessment to fully understand the needs, interests, barriers, and opportunities for collaboration between public libraries and public health. The assessment will consist of four stages:

  1.     Establishing an Advisory Board
  2.     Conducting a Scoping Review
  3.     Collecting both Quantitative and Qualitative Data
  4.     Analyzing the Results

The results of the analysis will assist in the collection of existing materials and tools that can feed the development of practical toolkits to support both public health and public library organizations in developing partnerships.
