The Medical Library Association Consumer Health Reference Service Handbook
Publication Date: 2001
Librarians, social workers, teachers, and anyone seeking the best avenues to take for researching all major health issues will find themselves using the handbook and CD-ROM as a master map. Barclay and Halsted list and annotate hundreds of sources for consumer health information and illustrate the principles and practice of consumer-health librarianship. The CD-ROM includes templates for developing an effective consumer-health Web site and for designing in-house consumer-health information brochures. This practical guide covers standard resources for answering health-related questions, discusses the art of the health-reference interview, and touches on such related matters as the legal implications of providing consumer-health information. Without giving short shrift to the many indispensable printed consumer-health information resources, it puts a heavy emphasis on the use--and evaluation--of electronic health-information resources.
