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. This program focuses 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.

Learning objectives:

1. Describe the use of telehealth activities within library systems and settings.
2. Identify partnership opportunities based on the evolving roles of health sciences libraries within digital transformation.
3. Apply telehealth resources to current library processes in the areas of education, clinical care and research.
