Learn to create a collection development plan for
an electronic library of free and fee-based web-accessible resources
for health and medicine. Students will focus on developing a collection
plan for one library patron group of their choice for the kind of
library they work in (e.g., hospital, medical center, medical school,
allied health programs, public libraries, academic libraries, other
special libraries, etc.). Patron groups may include: health care
consumers, physicians of general or particular specialty, nurses,
pharmacists, medical school students, allied health students, biomedical
researchers, etc. Participants will end the course with a good draft
e-library collection development plan.
Note: There is a web-based portion of this course
to follow the MLA '08 meeting. Participants will receive 15 MLA
CE contact hours, representing their online and live course work.
