Franklin Community Health Network Medical Library Outreach Project (Farmington, ME)
The Franklin Community Health Network Medical Library aims to increase the ability of librarians, consumers, and health care professionals in the Franklin Community Health Network service area to find and evaluate reliable and user-appropriate health information. The outreach project will educate participants about available resources and train them in finding, evaluating, and using health information resources. In order to make the medical library more accessible to working people and students, the library's operating hours will be extended to include Saturday. The medical librarians will provide onsite and offsite education and training for health care professionals, public librarians and consumers. Franklin County is one of the poorest and most rural in Maine.
