The Symposium is an annual networking and professional development event for librarians in Wyoming and other states in the region. Health information professionals, along with many public and academic librarians, are keenly interested in health information literacy and health literacy. Health professionals and the public need biomedical and health information suitable for their needs. This year's symposium is intended to respond to those needs.
