Abstract:Iowa City Public Library recently completed an eighteen-month consumer health project entitled Expanding Access to Consumer Health Electronic Resources in Iowa City and Rural Johnson County, Iowa. This project included health-related computer classes, demonstrations, and programs and was funded by the National Library of Medicine through a subcontract with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Greater Midwest Region. The Iowa City Public Library project built on the work completed by the Iowa Consumer Health Information Project, an earlier subcontract also funded by the National Library of Medicine. The Expanding Access project was an overall success. Project goals were met while patrons and staff increased knowledge and skills using electronic consumer health resources.
