Exhibit Award: Libraries: Helping Grow Minds - Michigan Library Association Annual Conference

Exhibit Award: Borgess Library?s exhibit for the Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association at Libraries: Helping Grow Minds the Michigan Library Association Annual Conference. This is an important audience for the NN/LM?s message, because public librarians serve on the ?front lines? and are often the consumer?s first point of contact for health information. Our goal in presenting a joint GMR/MHSLA exhibit is to help our librarian colleagues access and assess quality consumer health information. The National Library of Medicine leads the world in providing excellent information resources, free on the Internet. Staff in Michigan?s public, academic, and school libraries will benefit from exposure to all that NLM has to offer. Along with promoting NLM?s products and services, MHSLA welcomes the opportunity to raise our own visibility. We are eager to collaborate with professionals in other libraries, to lend expertise and share resources with an aim toward promoting health literacy in our state. We will spotlight the many MHSLA member libraries which have consumer health collections that are open to the public.
