MOU for Oregon Outreach OY1
To determine the needs and appropriate workshop topics, OHSU will conduct planning sessions with their community college and public library contacts in Oregon. Based on those discussions, OHSU can choose from (and update as needed) several workshops already developed by PNR staff, such as those listed on the PNR training page: https://nnlm.gov/pnr/classes. For newly developed workshops, or any current ones without MLA credit, every effort will be made to ensure that MLA CE credit is obtained. The current PNR workshops and any newly developed workshops (developed by OHSU via their MOU) will be offered in other states of the region, by RML staff, via in-person or distance formats. Curricula developed will be added to the MLA Clearinghouse as appropriate. Some examples of current workshops include ?Health Issues in the Headlines: Learning to Read Between the Lines? (approved for 4 hours of MLA CE); Caring for the Mind: Providing Mental Health Information at Your Library (approved for 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours of Medical Library Association CE); PubMed for the Rest of Us: Searching the Medical Literature for the Non-Expert (3 MLA CE); and ?Go to the Web and Say Ahhhh? (request for MLA CE Credit is in process).
