Upcoming Webinar on Digital Partnerships: The nature of library partnerships continue to evolve based on the introduction of new technologies and programs that focus on leveraging the expertise of academic and health system libraries to support telehealth applications. These partnerships benefit from strong support in traditional areas such as research and scholarship while taking advantage of the community relationships that extend out for health promotion and education. Sponsored by NNLM MAR, this one hour webinar will focus on the ability of libraries to take concrete steps to support the development and provision of telehealth services in ways that meet the needs of new populations while furthering the research surrounding healthcare access and equity. Join us for this webinar on March 2 at 1 PM ET. Registration is now open.
