Presentation Title: PubMed Health and MedlinePlus – A Tale of Two Sites
Presenter: Kelli Ham, Consumer Health & Technology Coordinator
Description: PubMed Health is a relatively new offering from the National Library of Medicine and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Searching for health topics on a site like Google often brings up a result from PubMed Health, but a result from MedlinePlus may or may not appear. What is the difference between the two sites? This webinar will provide a closer look at PubMed Health and how it compares with MedlinePlus. We will discuss the site’s relevance for medical libraries, health professionals and consumers, and situations when MedlinePlus would be a more appropriate resource.

Presentation Title: Sexual Violence: Resources for Survivors and their Support Network
Presenter: Lynn Kysh, PSR Intern
Description: This webinar will provide an overview of the prevalent issue of sexual violence and resources for librarians to help survivors and their support networks. Participants will learn about who is affected by this issue and about the different experiences and needs of survivors. Health issues and information needs will be highlighted and will include resources focused on what happens during the reporting process, how to locate local agencies, how to help a loved one, symptoms of rape trauma syndrome, and prevention strategies for youth.

Presentation Title: Operation Health: Resources for Veterans and Their Families
Presenter: Kelli Ham, Consumer Health & Technology Coordinator
Description: This webinar will provide an overview of the most pressing issues faced by returning veterans and their loved ones, and what library staff can do to help. Participants will learn about the spectrum of health issues and information needs of military veterans and their families, quality health resources and mobile apps; directories of medical facilities and services, and information about support services for spouses and families of deployed troops.
