The National Library of Medicine is the world’s largest biomedical library and plays a pivotal role in translating biomedical research into practice to improve the public health. This practice not only involves making cutting-edge scientific research available to health professionals, but also in distilling, organizing, and promoting reliable health information for the general public. This workshop will focus on introducing you to, and enhancing your ability to use, four free resources from the National Library of Medicine. You’ll walk away knowing how to help your patrons and students find health information in multiple languages, access consumer-friendly information on human genetics, locate high quality evidence-based research, and more!
