Librarians: fighting the fear of Ebola with information

ebolaOn October 14th, Lib2Gov in partnership with iPAC hosted a free webinar to “teach participants how to find and share reliable health information.” The webinar, titled “Fighting Ebola and Infectious Diseases with Information: Resources and Search Skills Can Arm Librarians,” is archived here and slides here. Here is the webinar description:

“Recent outbreaks across the globe and in the U.S. have made us all aware of potential public health impacts of infectious disease. Librarians find themselves assisting their users in finding credible information sources on topics such as Ebola, Chikungunya and pandemic influenza. Tune into this presentation by librarians at the U.S. National Library of Medicine on how to find and share reliable information.”

Besides the resources above, the library at St. Cloud State recently published a subject guide on Ebola as well as Scientific American’s listing of resources might be useful.
