How can a library provide health information to its users who have a culturally diverse background and speak one or more languages other than English? An online course that starts in January will demonstrate how.

From Beyond Our Borders: Providing Multilingual and Multicultural Health Information is an opportunity for librarians to better understand the available resources that they can provide for diverse populations with specific health needs within their community.

The course will give participants an understanding of the current population of refugees, immigrants, and migrant and seasonal farm workers in the U.S. It will discuss how cultural humility can influence the library’s surrounding environment, and introduce reliable websites with quality health information translated into multiple languages. Participants will be able  to construct their own outreach project from what they’ve learned and incorporate it into their library by the end of the course.

The class runs from Jan. 7 to Feb. 4.
