Ying Zhong, Walter W. Stiern Library, California State University–Bakersfield (CSUB), was recently awarded a research grant in the amount of $4,970 by the CSUB Research Council of the University (RCU). Zhong’s research, Assessing Health Information Literacy among CSUB Nursing Students, will assess the health information–seeking behaviors and attitudes of nursing students. The RCU grant will fund student assistants who will administer the project and collect data from the nursing student participants.
Zhong is a fellow of the 2019 MLA Research Training Institute (RTI), and this project was the focus of her research. The RTI project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (RE-95-17-0025-17).
