Consumer Health Librarian
Check back often for great resources from the Library for Health Information and our consumer health education partners.
The Library for Health Information has developed a series of six short videos to help you learn more about how to find trustworthy health information online. The video series includes website terminology and tips for searching and understanding health information on the web.
Some of the information contained in the videos was developed by Wisconsin Health Literacy, a non-profit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin. The video project was funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, and the National Library of Medicine under a grant with the University of Iowa.
