Unique Aspects of Health Sciences Librarianship - free recorded webinar and ongoing discussion

ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services and the Latino SIG of the Medical Library Association (MLA) have partnered to present the following free recorded webinar on the Unique Aspects of Health Sciences Librarianship! 

Five health sciences librarians discussed key aspects about their work in academia and public health information centers. The panel talked about information technologies, outreach programs for underserved communities, data management, research collaborations, and embedded library services in the educational setting. Tips on developing experience in health science librarianship and examples of successful services and programs that are unique to their respective constituencies were shared.
