The provision of health information is an important goal for most librarians wanting to insure their users become health literate. Librarians have a long history of delivering health information services to consumers; they now have an opportunity to become key partners in advancing health literacy¹ in their library. How can librarians accomplish this? They can become more knowledgeable about health information sources, provide health-related reference service, teach users how to find and select good health information, and recognize the issues of low health literacy in their community.
This 50-minute presentation offers some insight into the elements of a good health information service and is designed for librarians who want to advocate for health literacy.
