Upcoming Educational Opportunities

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List


Knowing what you don’t know: Medical Micro-aggressions: Health care access, serving patients, and working within your community is incredibly important work. To best do this work, we need to know who we are, what we bring to the table, and what we don’t know. Join in for a lively conversation to uncover what we don’t know, and how Step One is asking the right questions of ourselves and listening to others. This session is part of the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Nine Conversations that Matter to Health Sciences Librarians with Jessica Pettitt” series. March 18 at 10 MT/11 CT. (1 MLA CE) Register

Make it Work—Managing Your Solo or Small Hospital Library: Whether you work by yourself or with a small staff, the nitty-gritty of successfully delivering your services can be challenging. Join two successful solos (Louise McLaughlin and Helen-Ann Brown Epstein) as they discuss the importance of building partnerships throughout their organization, staying visible and valuable, all at the best possible price. April 15 at 2 MT/3 CT. (1 MLA CE) Register

How PubMed® Works: Introduction: Learn about what PubMed is and what’s included in it. We’ll explore how to find the original research that is the basis for a news article and we’ll spend time searching for articles by a specific author and searching on a specific subject. We’ll do exercises to narrow results to a more specific set of results. And lastly, we’ll explore the Advanced Search Builder and search history. March 11 from 12-1:30 MT/1-2:30 CT. (1.5 MLA CE) Register

Health Literacy in an Academic Environment: A great opportunity exists for college and university libraries to provide high-quality health information while simultaneously educating students on how to select and use credible health information. Academic libraries independently, or in collaboration with public health services, can disseminate accurate health information and build campus-wide partnerships to improve health literacy. This webinar focuses on identifying stakeholders, liability, goal setting and content creation. The webinar will highlight how a library from a mid-size university was able to collaborate with the university’s health service center to promote health literacy. March 17 at 10:00 a.m. PT. (1 MLA CE) Register
