Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:I Work in a Library not a Hospital! Providing Health Information to Library Customers
Description:Medical questions are among the most dreaded at any public library service desk - how do I ask for more information without prying (and, how do I avoid getting way too much information)?What's my best place to start? What databases and books do I need in my library, and how do I use them?  How do I know a website contains reliable information? What if I just can't find the answer?

Discover the reference desk basics for answering your customers' medical questions in this hands-on program , where (and how) to draw the line, and when and where to refer your patients, whoops, customers.
