Title:Library Trends 53 (3) Winter 2005: Consumer Health Issues, Trends, and Research, Part 2: Applicable Research in the 21st Century
Contributor(s):Mays, Tammy L.
Subject(s):Health information
Consumer health information
Abstract:The Internet has propelled the consumer health movement to the forefront of libraries. Academic health sciences, clinical, hospital, consumer health, and public librarians across the country are seeing a continuous growth in the number of requests for health information from their patrons. Internet savvy consumers are completing their own online health information searches. Patrons are seeking free, quality, electronic health information written in lay terminology, though both Internet and non-Internet users are seeking librarians for what they can not find. An exploration of consumer health issues, trends, and research is covered in these issues of Library Trends. Part 2—Applicable Research in the 21st Century— promotes creative partnerships and models between agencies and library institutions and delivers strategies for achieving health literacy in a variety of communities.
