Consumer Health Librarian
The Ohio State University Health Sciences Library is a National Library of Medicine (NNLM) Region 6 Partner Outreach Program (POP) Ambassador Organization for 2021-2026 as well as being named a Region 6 Resource library. More information can be found in our News and Events article: HSL To Serve As NNLM Ambassador Library.
One of the primary goals of the LHI is to provide consumer health education resources to the community at large. Our physical library in the 5th floor Atrium on the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center campus includes a large library of patient education pamphlets and flyers. Members of the community can also request health information by calling or emailing the library. All health information requests and materials are provided free of charge.
The LHI also participates in various community health fairs during the year. With social distancing and other health guidelines in place, we are looking for ways to reach the community through virtual events. We see this as an opportunity to extend our community health education efforts far beyond our usual geographic limitations! Reach out to us if you are having a virtual community health event, and let us know how we can help.
