Express Outreach Award 2005: Library Automation/Family Resource Center

This project will allow the Children's Hospital to automate the library and provide better consumer library services. Improvements will be made to the Family Resource Center, including linking the collection to the Heartland Regional Library Network libraries, making materials available for checkout, and building on the existing collection of consumer health materials. In addition, training will be held to teach public, school and academic librarians how to search for consumer health information so that they may provide better services for their users.
