Improving Access: Technology Upgrades for Public Computer Workstations
Morningcrest Health Library (MHL) is a consumer health information center located in the Schusterman Center Clinic. MHL provides free public access to NLM databases, supported by the services of a professional medical librarian. The goal of this project is to provide an easier means of navigating online resources by incorporating new touchscreen computers. This will allow individuals who are challenged by a lack of computer skills, or those with limited dexterity, to explore websites independently. Headphones will provide a better means for individuals to choose a format that best suits their learning preferences including videos and interactive tutorials featured in MedlinePlus and Senior Health.
