Building and sustaining community-based partnerships
are essential to effective health information outreach and various
library programs and services. The overall goal of this course is
to offer concrete skills and several perspectives that are useful
for establishing relationships with a range of community-based organizations
and potential partners. Participants will take part in group discussions
to explore new models and tools for engaging and retaining community
partnerships. A number of examples and a case study will be used
to promote a problem-solving approach for in-class interactions.
Participants will have opportunities to learn practical and strategic
approaches for achieving optimal community cooperation and collaboration
and adapt these approaches to their own environments.
