Promoting ZSFG Library to Underserved Patients and Hospital Staff (2017)

The Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) and Trauma Center Library, a health sciences library affiliated with the University of California at San Francisco, will promote health information resources at two events: Summerfest (June 2017) and National Medical Librarians Month (October 2017). The library will host a table in the hospital cafeteria, and staff will use a spinnable wheel and video monitor to teach patrons about ZSFG Library services, including NLM databases. The primary objective is to use the two events to increase patient and staff awareness of the ZSFG Library in a way that encourages communication, engagement, and active learning.
