Presentation Description

Having won the NN/LM State and Regional Exhibiting Award, Mercer Jack Tarver Library launched in April 2010 the “Tips for a Healthy U” outreach and instruction initiative. The presentation will share the experience of building a collaborative program to engage various units on and off-campus in promoting health information skills to academic and community users. Practical tips will be provided on developing proposal structure, curriculum design, implementation strategies, and a massive outreach effort that a project of such significance and complexity entails.
