Hospital Library Chat: Information Audit

The NN/LM, NER is hosting this webinar titled: Information Audit taught by Jeannine Gluck, Director, Eastern Connecticut Health Network to be held on Thursday April 24, 2014 from 10:00am-11:15am.

This one-hour class will present the basics of information auditing, an information science technique for in-depth needs assessment. While it is not specific to libraries, it can be used to determine the needs of a department, a new function in your institution, or a group intended for outreach. The audit consists of determining the needs of your target group, and the resources available to them. Information flow is charted to uncover the gaps, and recommendations are made.

Please register at

This webinar will be recorded and posted on the NN/LM, NER website for future viewing.
