LEGAL AND HEALTH ELECTRONIC RESOURCES WORKSHOPS

Welcome to the registration and survey website for legal and health electronic resources workshops.

These workshops are designed to instruct public librarians on law and health and medical Internet websites and other electronic resources for library users. To reinforce the lessons and share insights and experiences, a follow-up session on will be scheduled within three months with the participants and the workshop presenters.

Minnesota Association of Law Librarians (MALL) members wrote the curriculum and will present the workshop on electronic resources on the law. Health Sciences Librarians of Minnesota (HSLM) members wrote the curriculum and will present the workshop on health and medical electronic resources. The workshops are funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The State Library Agency, Minnesota Department of Education, sponsors the workshops.

At the conclusion of each workshop, participants will:

  • Have the knowledge to locate authoritative websites and electronic databases for library users on the particular topic;
  • Be able to locate these resources more quickly;
  • Have reproducible quick guides for the convenience of library users;
  • Be able to instruct library users about these resources;
  • For outreach purposes, have knowledge of social service agencies connected to the workshop topic that serve populations deprived of electronic access to information.
The pre-workshop surveys at this website will assist the presenters in customizing the workshop. The post-workshop survey will assist also in evaluating the success of the workshop and in planning the follow-up session.
