NNLM Announces a New Online, On Demand, Training Opportunity: MedlinePlus for Public Librarians

Posted in: #Public/K-12 List


MedlinePlus is the National Institutes of Health web resource for the public on all things health and medical related. Need information on a disease or condition? A drug, herb or supplement? A medical or diagnostic test? A healthy recipe? Health information in another language? MedlinePlus has you and your library patrons covered. Produced by the National Library of Medicine and written for the general public, MedlinePlus offers trusted, current and ad-free health information, anytime, anywhere, for free.

 

The MedlinePlus for Public Librarians’ class is a free, one-hour interactive tutorial that helps you deep-mine the depth and breadth of information found on this key resource so you can provide your patrons with solid health and medical information. The class is eligible for the Consumer Health Information Specialization (link is external) and approved for 1 continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association.  Upon concluding the tutorial, you may print a certificate of completion. And, because this tutorial is on demand, it’s available 24/7 – just like MedlinePlus!
