The Library Success Wiki http://www.libsuccess.org was created for librarians to share successful and innovative programs they are carrying out. As more projects are shared, we all have a great resource to use when developing projects at our own libraries. The NN/LM MCR created a section specific to health information http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title=Services_for_Health_Information_Consumers During the next several issues of the RML news, we will be highlighting entries in this section. We hope this will give you ideas on projects to carry out yourself, as well as inspire you to add best practices from your library!
During last week’s webinar “Tornadoes and Earthquakes and Floods OH MY!” the Together Prepared project was highlighted http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title=Together_Prepared This entry describes a public library in Kansas that was already working with several organizations on disaster preparedness. They recieved funding from the NN/LM MCR to further develop the work of the partnership, expanding the resources for the public library to become a command calling center during an emergency and creating a website of resources. Take a look at the wiki entry for more details. [scb]
