Title: Academic Librarian Participation in Health Fairs: An Interactive Mode of Health Information Outreach
Objective: To determine the level of academic librarian involvement and participation in campus and/or community health fairs as a means of health information outreach.
Methods: Online survey distributed to US academic health sciences libraries (affiliated or unaffiliated with a hospital) and general academic libraries serving four-year institutions.
Results: Over half of the survey respondents indicated that librarians at their library never participated in health fairs, while just over 20% said that they occasionally participated. Our survey uncovered many barriers that sometimes prevent librarians from fully participating in health information outreach activities, including health fairs.
Conclusions: In addition to the survey results, this poster will provide an example of health information outreach in the form of a campus health fair at the authors' institution. Lessons learned and practical tips for other libraries will be explored.
Authors: Jodi Jameson, Nursing Librarian, Mulford Health Science Library; Lucy Duhon, Coordinator, Serials/Electronic Resources, and Serials Librarian, Carlson Library; University of Toledo, Toledo, OH
