Are you a librarian who wants to learn more about providing consumer health information to your patrons? Join VCU Libraries for a free two-day workshop ideal for librarians working in public, community college, academic or hospital settings. Library students and those interested in providing or creating a community- or patient-focused library are also invited to attend. The April 20–21 workshop will help librarians develop the awareness and skills needed to provide patrons with accurate health information.
The workshop is free to participants. One night's hotel stay will be provided for the first 10 out-of-town participants to register. Mileage and parking for all workshop attendees will be reimbursed. Food and snacks during workshop sessions are provided. Seating is limited to 25. Librarians who complete all sessions will receive credit (10 hours) toward the Consumer Health Information Specialist Certification from the Medical Libraries Association. Librarians who already hold this certification may use the hours for re-certification. Sessions will be broken up by snack breaks, lunch, networking time and informative tours. You are free to register for one or both days, but preference will be given to attendees who want to attend both sessions to earn their certification.
The event is free and open to all, but please register. Parking is available for a fee in the 8th Street parking deck.
