University Librarians Present Consumer Health Resources to Suffolk County Librarians

On Wednesday, June 22, SBU Librarians Jennifer Lyon, Jamie Saragossi, and Sally Stieglitz presented Consumer Health Resources for the Public Librarian to an engaged audience of public librarians at the Suffolk Cooperative Library System (SCLS) in Bellport, NY at an event co-sponsored by SCLS Outreach Services and the Health Concerns Committee of the Suffolk County Library Association. Sharing information on health literacy, key medical resources, health statistics, drug resources, and mobile applications, the three librarians from the SBU Health Sciences Library (Lyon and Saragossi) and the Melville Library (Stieglitz) covered a broad range of  topics to assist public librarians find reliable and complete answers for their patrons’ health information reference questions. Thanks to an enthusiastic reception to this program from both SCLS and the public librarians, SBU Libraries and SBU Health Sciences Library will be planning future collaborations and presentations.
