NNLM Training Office Announces New MedlinePlus Training!

Posted by on August 16th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, Consumer Health, Education & Training, MedlinePlus, NLM Resources


The NNLM Training Office recently announced a new online, on demand, training opportunity: MedlinePlus for Public Librarians.

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 Medical Library Association’s Consumer Health Information Specialization and approved for one (1) continuing education credit. Upon completing the tutorial, you may print a certificate of completion. And, because this tutorial is on demand, it’s available 24/7 – just like MedlinePlus!

Please note the following content disclaimer for the course issued by the NNLM Training Office (NTO): “MedlinePlus is always updating! Some content may have changed since the publication of this tutorial. Subscribe to the MyMedlinePlus Weekly Newsletter to stay informed, or contact the NTO with questions.”
