PLA, NNLM expand strategic partnership through consumer health programming survey

Wed, 2019-04-10 11:59

The Public Library Association (PLA) has added another collaborative project to its ongoing partnership with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), a program of the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

Through this partnership, PLA will launch a new survey intended to measure the effectiveness of public libraries’ consumer health programming in Project Outcome, the association’s free toolkit designed to help public libraries understand and share the impact of essential library services and programs. Funding for the creation of the new survey was provided by three of NNLM’s eight regional medical libraries: MidContinental, Pacific Southwest, and South Central. The survey will be added to Project Outcome in April 2019.

“With this new survey, PLA seeks to expand public libraries’ capacity to apply outcome data in decision-making and planning around consumer health programming and services,” remarks PLA President Monique le Conge Ziesenhenne, PhD. “We’re thrilled to team up with NNLM on this important project.”

In March, PLA announced it will team up with NNLM to raise awareness of the National Institute of Health’s All of Us Research Program, a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the U.S., to accelerate research and improve health. In 2017, the two organizations launched Promoting Healthy Communities, a nine-month project to assess health information needs among public librarians and share free health literacy resources. The goal of Promoting Healthy Communities is to increase public library workers’ knowledge and skills related to consumer health services.

Libraries: Foundations of Strong, Healthy Communities

Thu, 2019-04-04 13:19

Connection, education, participation, and empowerment—these are defining characteristics of strong and healthy communities.

A recent partnership between the National Network Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and the All of Us Research Program seeks to build and strengthen these characteristics in communities across the U.S. The mission of the NNLM is to “to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improve the public’s access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.”

The All of Us Research Program aims to advance discovery in biomedical research and improve health by providing more precise, individualized treatments for disease. The All of Us Research Program is a clinical trial that seeks the participation of over one million individuals traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research—people of color, women, people of diverse sexual orientations and identities, and people from diverse environments and socioeconomic backgrounds—to make biomedical advancements possible.

The NNLM/All of Us partnership empowers public libraries to educate the public about the All of Us Research Program and connect participants with health information. Through the partnership, libraries are encouraging people to take an active role in their health, by asking questions, learning about data privacy and informed consent, and learning how to find reliable health information. Libraries are also encouraging the public to participate in discussions about research ethics and genetics, and to think critically about these issues when assessing the value of their own contributions, as individual participants, to clinical research, medical advancements, and health of their communities. Libraries empower their communities by listening to their health needs, convening discussions, offering health and wellness programs, and finding answers to their health related questions.

Libraries truly are the foundations of strong and healthy communities through connection, education, participation, and empowerment. The NNLM encourages you to celebrate National Library Week, April 7-13, and discover how libraries are building a strong community.

Announcing the NNLM Spring 2019 Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon!

Thu, 2019-03-28 13:51

When was the last time you used Wikipedia? With more than 7 billion views a year on over 155,000 health topic pages, Wikipedia may be the most popular online health information resource. Acknowledging that Wikipedia is a highly trafficked source for health related topics, it is then vital that we strive to improve the content and citations provided in health and medicine articles to ensure that our health professionals, patients, and patrons have access to high-quality, reliable information.

Building on the success of two past events, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine is continuing its efforts to improve consumer health information on Wikipedia with its third Edit-a-Thon on May 6, 2019. Using trusted National Library of Medicine resources like PubMed, MedlinePlus, and Genetics Home Reference, we will be working to add citations to existing Wikipedia articles related to health equity. New to editing Wikipedia? Get ready for the event by watching our past training hosted by Dr. James Heilman, a physician and active WikiProject Medicine editor. In this introductory session, Dr. Heilman provides an overview of the importance of Wikipedia and demonstrates how to add a citation to existing articles.

New for this Edit-a-Thon is an in-person editing session held at the Medical Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago, IL. Led by Aimee Gogan, Alicia Lillich, and Elaina Vitale, the immersion session will describe the importance of Wikipedia as a resource for health information and how librarians can utilize their research skills to make Wikipedia a better evidence-based resource. Not only will attendees participate in live editing of health equity articles, they will become part of a community of Wikipedians dedicated to improving health information. If you will be attending MLA, please join us on Monday, May 6 from 2:00 PM – 3:25 PM for this lively and engaging session!

Whether you attend the immersion session at MLA or host an event at your organization, we look forward to working with you on May 6 to improve health equity information on Wikipedia. Check out nnlm.gov/wiki to learn more about the event and make sure to follow along on Twitter throughout the day with the hashtag #citeNLM to ask questions, post photos, and share your Wikipedia experience. See you on May 6!

To increase technology skills, participants were given the opportunity to attend a thirty-minute computer basics class before each health information presentation. Each participant was given a laptop to use during the session.

Webinar participants will learn about this collaboration for health literacy and how the project was developed and implemented in Richmond city’s East End with the support of the Richmond Public Library East End Branch Library.  The speaker will also provide an overview of the feedback received by participants and discuss the project’s next steps.

Presenter Bio: Dana L. Ladd Ph.D has over nineteen years of experience as a librarian. She is currently an associate professor on the faculty at the Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences and is the Community Health Education Center Librarian.

At the Community Health Education Center, Dr. Ladd manages the daily operations of the library, supervises and trains staff, provides consumer health information services for patients, their family members, and the public, and teaches health information classes.

NNLM All of Us Reading Club

The NNLM Reading Club is a “ready-to-use” book kit with free and downloadable materials designed to help libraries support the health information needs in their communities.

Book selections support topics that align with the NIH All of Us Research Program and recognize a National Health Observance. Through the fun and intimacy of a book club, readers will discuss health and wellness topics important to them and their loved ones.

We know you read, after all, you’re a librarian! So please share your favorite fiction, nonfiction, memoir, graphic novel, or young adult health-themed books that will make for a lively book discussion, and our selection panel will consider them for upcoming NNLM Reading Club picks.

Please visit https://nnlm.gov/Z4A to share your ideas!
